Kāpiti Coast District Council is responsible for supplying safe water to approximately 20,000 connections for household and commercial water use in the District.
Our water is sourced from various locations around the district and council is responsible for the management and maintenance of it's assets such as treatement plants, reservoirs, pump stations and the reticulation network. Daily monitoring and alarm notifications are all managed by a monitoring system (SCADA). Any faults within the reticulation network, such as a pump station blockage are recorded by this system and the alarm raised.
We have developed a short film called Our Safe Drinking Water for use in schools. View a shortened version of the film here.
We work with our communities to ensure people in the district have reliable access to clean water, now and in the future.
