Water restrictions are now in force with handheld hoses allowed 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. Visit cdc.govt.nz/water for more info
