I hope the 8,000+ cruise passengers we had in town today didn't drink too much water!

Accordingto this Stuff link: http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post...-of-water-left

WHERE DOES OUR WATER COME FROM?

About two-thirds of the water supply for Wellington city, Porirua and Hutt Valley comes from the Hutt, Wainuiomata and Orongorongo rivers. The rest comes from Waiwhetu aquifer, a reservoir beneath Hutt Valley.

The regional council can take up to 150 million litres of water a day from Hutt River, provided a flow of at least 600 litres a second is maintained. A separate consent allows the council to take water until this flow hits 400 litres a second in emergency situations.

Wairarapa and the Kapiti Coast do not get their water from Greater Wellington Regional Council.
