"Ki uta ki tai - from the mountains to the sea, water is life"
Wellington relies on safe and reliable drinking water. Most of this water comes from the Hutt and Wainuiomata/Orongorongo water collection areas. These areas supply around 60% of Wellington's water, with the remainder is comes from the Waiwhetu aquifer system below the Hutt Valley.
Safe and reliable drinking water doesn't arrive at your tap without planning and managing the bush and forest in the water collection areas - and that's part of our job at Greater Wellington Regional Council to help Wellington Water deliver good quality drinking water to you.
