Wellington's water supply

Drinking water, stormwater and wastewater

Wellington Water is contracted to manage the drinking water, stormwater and wastewater services for the Wellington City Council.

Recreational water quality monitoring

Greater Wellington Regional Council regularly monitors the water quality of our swimming sites and is responsible for managing pollution through responding to environmental incidents.

If you notice a problem with water quality at a beach or river, report it to GWRC on 0800 496 734 (24-hour hotline). This will help support all of the work that is happening to improve the water quality in the Wellington region.
