Latest update on NPDC response to ex-Cyclone Gita

Latest update on NPDC response to ex-Cyclone Gita


A boil water notice has been issued for all residents in New Plymouth, Bell Block, Waitara, Tikorangi, Onearo and Urenui.

The water is OK to use to flush the toilet, but should be boiled for one minute before being used for drinking. This includes filtered water.

Please use your emergency water supplies first.

Water tankers are on their way to the following locations:
1. Hickford Park Car Park (end of Smeaton Road), Bell Block
2. Bell Block Court, Bell Block (Outside The Warehouse)
3. Outside Waitara Memorial Hall, Memorial Place, Waitara
4. Clifton Park car park, opposite Waitara High School, Princess Street, Waitara
5. Outside Tennis/Bowling Club, Manutahi Road, Lepperton
6. Rimu Street Industrial Park, Rimu Street, Merrilands, New Plymouth
7. Outside Mangorei School, Mangorei Road, New Plymouth

All big water users have been asked to stop using water. It is up to businesses to decide if they should shut, however all water must be boiled first before being consumed.

There is a total ban on using water for gardens or outside washing; level 4 water restrictions apply.

Ex-Cyclone Gita has caused a large tree to fall and destroyed a pipe bridge that carries one of our biggest water pipes near the New Plymouth Water treatment plant yesterday afternoon. This has cut off water supply to the eastern part of the New Plymouth District and will result in outages this afternoon. We’re clearing the site of trees debris and have sourced a pipe that we’ll used in the repair.
