Carrington & Taratahi Water Races  – Restrictions now in force

 Carterton District Council has imposed water restrictions onto the Carrington and Taratahi Water Races, due to the lack of rain fall and the current low water levels of Waingawa and Mangatarere Rivers.

As our water allocation has been reduced to the lowest take, we need to conserve water so the supply reaches our end race users.

This restriction dictates that race water can only be used for the purpose of stock drinking water and domestic toilets only. 

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

Your co-operation is appreciated.
