Regional Standard and Specification

Wellington Water is currently reviewing and revising the Regional Standard and Specification.  We anticipate releasing draft versions for feedback in May 2021. These documents were developed to consolidate the existing codes of practice for water services for Porirua City, Hutt City, Upper Hutt City and Wellington City in order to provide a regionally consistent method of design and implementation of water services across the Wellington region.     Read more

Approved Products Register

The Approved Products Register lists products that are approved for use in Hutt, Upper Hutt, Wellington, and Porirua cities’ water supply and drainage infrastructure projects. The list is generally restricted to pipeline fixtures and fittings. Specialised items, such as pumps, radio transmitters and electrical components, are not included in this list. Prior to design, the designer should confirm the specifications for these specialised items with Wellington Water.   Read more
