Water main works along SH1 near Portland

The aging watermain that runs along the left-hand side of State Highway 1, going North, between the Maungakaramea turn off and Portland Road will be replaced over the next six weeks (during August and September 2021).

The new watermain will be installed by horizontal directional drilling under trees, fences, gates and driveways with no need to dig up the surface.

The next section to be completed, from State Highway 1 along Maungakaramea Road towards the Puwera reservoir, is scheduled for August 2022.
