Wairau Valley Supply and Reticulation The Wairau Valley scheme became operational in 1991. Water is sourced from a bore adjacent to the Wairau River accessed via Keith Coleman Road. The water is disinfected with chlorine as it is pumped into the town reticulation.

The supply services an area in the Wairau Valley Township on the northern side of SH 63 from Church Street to Northbank Street only.

Naturally occurring arsenic has been identified in the groundwater to the south of SH 63 which is currently under investigation. The water in this area is very corrosive to metal plumbing. The existing scheme has no spare capacity in its present form to service outside the designated supply district.

Water Metering was installed in 2006/2007.
