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.
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.
