The Whakatāne District Council and Whakatāne Volunteer Fire Brigade will undertake a fire hydrant flushing programme throughout Whakatāne in November.

The work is required to ensure the town’s water reticulation scheme - and in particular, the fire hydrants it supplies - remain in good working order.

Flushing will be carried out:

  • Between 8 am and 5 pm on 1 and 2 November
    • Coastlands, Awatapu, Riverside Drive and James Street (west of Hinemoa Street)
  • 8 and 9 November
    • Eivers Road, McGarvey Road, McAlister Street, Muriwai Drive, Wairaka, Hillcrest, and Mokoroa
