FIRE STATUS

RESTRICTIONS

Restricted Fire Season

Wairarapa moves to a Restricted Fire Season as of Wednesday 19 January.

A restricted fire season means anyone planning on lighting an open-air fire will need a permit.

You can apply for a permit at checkitsalright.nz.

Visit the Fire and Emergency New Zealand website for more information.

 

WATER RESTRICTIONS AND SHUTDOWNS

WATER RESTRICTIONS NOW IN FORCE

Handheld hoses on alternate days (Odd numbered houses on odd numbered days, even houses on even days)

Water supply for the Carterton District comes from the Kaipaitangata Stream and two underground bores. These sources are dependent on rainfall. The bores have limited storage capacity which limits our maximum daily water usage is 2500 cubic metres. Any more than this seriously compromises the ability to supply urban drinking water and our district’s firefighting capabilities.

Restrictions may change dependent on rainfall.
