Parts of Wellington water supply still off

1:36 pm on 18 September 2011

Water supply in parts of Wellington will remain off, or disrupted, until early Sunday evening.

A water main burst at 10am, cutting the water supply to a large part of Brooklyn and the suburbs of Vogeltown, Mornington and Kingston.

Wellington City Council says officers and contractors are working to fix the problem.

They need to replace a four-metre section of pipe which is estimated to take up to six hours.
