Future water collection area

Greater Wellington manages the Pakuratahi Forest as a future water collection area to provide fresh, clean healthy water for the region's future generations. In the meantime, the forest provides great places to walk, ride and recreate in and it has important environmental and ecological values.

For more information please phone the Parks department during normal business hours 04 384 5708 or email

Greater Wellington currently uses the Wainuiomata and Hutt catchment areas to provide drinking water to the Hutt, Wellington and Porirua communities and these areas have their own management plan. Find out more about Greater Wellington's role in the region's water supply and the water collection areas management plan.
