Te Puna Wai Ora provides pure artesian water that originates from the Hutt River. The water enters the artesian aquifer (layers of sand, gravel and boulders locked in by clay and silt) several kilometers up the Hutt River at Taita Gorge. It is naturally filtered through the alluvial gravels and sands of the Hutt Valley over several years before reaching Petone and flowing out to the sea. The water is free from micro-organisms and organic substances. It is safe to drink in its natural form because it has been naturally filtered in its long journey through the aquifer. It is highly valued throughout the region and some consumers travel long distances to collect the water for drinking.
