Wellington's Mayor has met with the Local Government Minister over the state of the capital's pipes and warned the problems will be felt for decades.

Tory Whanau was summoned to the Beehive by the Minister Simeon Brown to discuss the city's water woes.

Earlier this month the mayor, along with Upper Hutt mayor Wayne Guppy, received a ministerial public dressing down about not providing information to the government amid concerns of an acute water shortage this summer.
