Water Restrictions Still In Place
Did you know the maximum daily supply Council can currently maintain is 2500 cubic metres per day? We’ve already gone over this level a few times in January, which is easy to do with all the hot weather we’ve been having.
The Kaipaitanagata stream, which is our main water source, is dependent on rainfall and is currently so low there is no longer any water flowing over the weir. We are now providing water via the Frederick Street bore field. This is why the current water restrictions are still handheld hoses on alternate days.
You can check out our daily usage charts here or watch this handy video for easy ways of conserving water. Don’t forget, the council also sells water tanks you can install yourself so you can still water your garden without relying on the town’s water supply.
