Residents have been advised the water supply is back on for Mount Maunganui and Papamoa following the fix of a major water main today.
The water supply is back on and the broken water main has been repaired and connected back into the network, a Tauranga City Council spokesperson said.
Earlier today the Tauranga City Council was urging residents to be conservative with water after a major water main broke, cutting off Mount Maunganui and Papamoa from the rest of the network.

It will take another day for reservoirs to recover and the council's water team will keep "a close eye on the system as they work to get everything back to normal".
