About the water supply

A bore at Smoothy Road is the primary water source for the Ōpononi-Ōmāpere community and the Waiotemarama Stream is a secondary supply.

Supply improvements

Until 2020, Waiotemarama Stream was the primary raw water source for the community. However, it was very vulnerable to dry weather, requiring the Council to automatically apply Level 2 water restrictions to the supply each December.
