This public artesian well was opened by Te Runanganui o te Atiawa at Waiwhetu Marae in 2020.
The water at the Waiwhetu taps comes from the Waiwhetu Aquifer, a natural underground water system located beneath the Hutt Valley and Wellington Harbour.
Aquifer water goes through a natural filtration process underground. Before the water comes out of the taps it goes through a filtration and UV-treatment process on-site to make sure that it is safe to drink.
Type of supply
