Arrowtown Water Supply Upgrade Underway

Jul 11, 2019

Preparations for an upgrade to Arrowtown’s water supply are underway ahead of construction work commencing on Monday 15 July. Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) is upgrading the supply to allow for both increased capacity and water quality.

The works are taking place at the Bush Creek Car Park on Buckingham Street, and the upgrade will require the closure of the footbridge to the Mace Town and Saw Pit Gully Tracks. Temporary Bridges will be put in place to ensure continued access and the nearby public toilets will remain open for use.

The works are to be completed in stages so not all areas will be under construction at the same time. Signage will be in place to advise locals and visitors, and the project is schedule to be completed by 13 December 2019.
