Tihiroa Rural Water Scheme temporary shutdown

The Tihiroa Rural Water Scheme will be shutdown on Tuesday 12 September from 8.00am until 6.00pm.

The Water Services team of Ōtorohanga District Council will be conducting reservoir maintenance of the Tihiroa rural scheme and this is expected to take up to 10 hours to complete.

The Tihiroa treatment plant will not be sending any water during this time as the reservoir will be offline. We are advising everyone on this scheme to prepare and store enough water for this downtime.

We apologise for any inconvenience. This maintenance activity will improve the capacity of the reservoir as well as minimize line and meter blockages during low reservoir events. Thank you.
