The table below is information directly from the Tauranga City Council on where different suburbs get their water from. If yours isn’t listed, you can probably have a pretty good guess judging by which suburbs listed are close by to you.

Brewing Water Spreadsheets

We have also put this information directly into the Bru’n Water spreadsheet. You can download the file and use it with the values already inputted, but for more info on the spreadsheet, check out their website. You can use the basics of this spreadsheet in Google Sheets, but for full functionality you will need to use Excel.
