New Water Supply

Jubilation in Kaitāia on Monday 20th June 2022 as the Kaitāia Water Project was officially blessed, marking the completion of the project which has the potential to supply up to 5,000 cubic metres of extra water per day to the region.

Stellar Projects managed this key infrastructure project on behalf of Far North District Council, with valued input from Ngāi Takoto, Te Rarawa and Ngāti Kahu. The project involved the installation of two bores at Sweetwater, with an extensive 14km pipeline transporting water from Sweetwater to the water treatment plant in Okahu Road. This new supply will provide Kaitāia’s water in future, allowing for growth in the region and less disruption from droughts.
