Water supply

The Waimakariri District Council operates 16 water supply schemes supplying water to over 15,000 properties.

Water supply problems

If you have a problem with your water supply, please call the Council on 03 311 8900.  If the problem is on the Council side of the 'point of supply', the Council's maintenance contractor will fix it for you.

It may be that your water supply problems are not the Council’s responsibility, for example, there is a private problem with the pipes in your house or the pipe between the Council’s service valve to your house is leaking. If this is the case, you will need to call a plumber and pay them to fix the problem.

For an application to obtain a permit to use a fire hydrant, please contact the Water Asset Manager on 03 311 8900.
