Water Treatment Plant Tours

Every day the people of Wellington have access to high quality drinking water at the turn of a tap; come and see how that water is made safe to drink and how it gets to your tap.

Greater Wellington Regional Council's Te Marua (Upper Hutt), Waterloo (Lower Hutt) and Wainuiomata water treatment plants supply about 60 percent of all the water used by the Region's four cities. School groups (aged 7 or older) are welcome to visit either treatment plant by arrangement, between Monday and Friday, for a free guided tour. Bookings are essential.

Teachers have said of the tours: 'The students are still talking about the trip. The parents rated it the best school trip ever!'

Wainuiomata treatment plant is 25 minutes by car from downtown Wellington, while Te Marua is 35 minutes away.
