Water Shutdown – 9 Jan 19

We need to undertake some urgent repairs to our water pipes on Taylor Street. Water to this area will be shutdown from 10-11am today.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause

Water Restrictions now in force

Carterton District Council has imposed water restrictions on the use of the Town Water Supply due to the lack of rain fall and the current water of rivers and streams.

Hand-held hosing and sprinkler use only is permitted.

  • Even numbered properties on even numbered days.
  • Odd numbered properties on odd numbered days.

This applies to those rural addresses connected to Town Water Supply.

This restriction will be upgraded to a total hosing ban if we cannot reduce the current demand on our water supply.

Please use the water sensibly and avoid wastage. This will help to ensure that there is a sufficient water supply for everyone.
