Burst watermain cuts supply to homes in four Newlands streets

Another watermain has burst in Wellington – this one in Newlands.

Wellington Water reports:

Our team responded to a watermain burst at Stewart Drive, Newlands at 4am this morning.

The burst has affected residents on Stewart Drive, Padnell Street, Pritchard Street and Loasby Crescent.

At 9am, more information:

A water tanker will be on site located between Batchelor and Padnell Street shortly, supplying temporary water to affected residents.

Service is expected to be restored to the area in 3-4 hours.

This afternoon there is no information on Wellington Water’s website about the Newlands watermain.

But the website says there are outages in three other suburbs:

40 properties in Wainuiomata, 20 properties in Island Bay, and 65 properties in Avalon. The company expects to resolve each “issue” by mid afternoon.
