Omāroro Water Reservoir
The Omāroro/Prince of Wales Park reservoir will provide critical additional bulk water storage for Wellington’s central business district area and low-lying suburbs to improve operational and disaster resilience.
The reservoir will also provide a significant increase in water storage for the city. In the event supply pipes are disrupted, this would take it from having less than a day’s worth of supply to approximately 48-hours’ worth.
The construction of the 35 million-litre reservoir — enough to fill 14 Olympic swimming pools — above the playing fields at Prince of Wales Park in Mt Cook is being managed by Wellington Water.
