Construction on a new treatment plant has gained momentum, keeping Auckland’s water supply on track for a much-needed boost, TVNZ reports. The facility is expected to increase the water supply in the city from the Waikato River from 175 million litres a day to 225 million. This will help ease pressure on the city’s dams. Dam storage was at a record low in 2020, falling to 42 per cent. Normally, the supply level is 86.3 percent by now, but it’s still at a low 62.89 per cent.
