LEVEL 1 RESTRICTIONS
Level One Restrictions – still in force.
Carterton water restrictions are still in place, and could be increased due to damage caused to council’s water intake infrastructure after the Kaipatangata Stream, Carterton’s primary water supply, flooded in late February. Carterton’s water supply is being sourced from the council’s Lincoln Road bores while repairs are undertaken. The repair process could take another 2-3 weeks, meaning that it is important that urban residents continue to conserve water under the current restrictions.
- 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.
