Mapua residents and businesses are asked to restrict their water usage to essential use only.
Council contractors have begun work to repair a problem in the main water pipe from the Richmond Water Treatment Plant. This is likely to take until at least midday today and, in the meantime, it is important to keep water usage to a minimum to conserve the remaining supply.
Please pass on this information to friends and neighbours.
We will continue to provide updates as the repairs progress.
There is also currently no water available at Rabbit Island. Please avoid using the public toilets in the meantime.
