Grange Road Water Association
The Grange Road Water Association (GRWA) is a registered charity, managed by volunteers, delivering water to 78 properties in Grange Rd, Hahei. GRWA was set up originally with help from Vaughn Harsant when the Grange Rd area was subdivided in the 1970s.
Water is sourced from 3 bores in Patricia Place and then pumped to storage tanks at the entrance to Cathedral Heights. Over the years the system has been maintained and upgraded by volunteers and local contractors. The water quality is regularly checked to ensure it complied with NZ Drinking Water Standards. Generally there is plenty of water to supply residents except during the busy holiday season when our bore pumps can barely cope.
We are a volunteer organisation that depends on all our members to act responsibly and help to keep our water system running efficiently. Most importantly, we expect everyone to use our precious water wisely and control any leaks on their properties. As a small system, even small leaks have a significant effect on our ability to deliver water to everyone.
Three Waters (Drinking, Sewage and Stormwater) management in New Zealand is currently undergoing major changes in New Zealand. The GRWA Committee plans to continue operating our system, doing our best to comply with new regulations as they emerge.
