Clean, safe water is essential for residents’ quality of life and wellbeing.

What we do

We ensure Wellingtonians have high-quality water available at all times for drinking as well as other household and business uses. We are responsible for looking after the network, all new connections and making sure all statutory requirements and environmental standards are met. In November 2013 Upper Hutt and Porirua City Councils joined Wellington and Hutt City Councils as shareholders of Capacity Infrastructure Services Ltd. This means the water services for all four councils is managed by Capacity - providing the opportunity to share knowledge and ideas to provide regional solutions for water management.
