We appreciate all the hard work you’ve been doing to conserve water, and it’s really making a difference.

The water ban will continue until we have significant rainfall to increase the flows at the Kaipatangata Stream, which is our main water source. And although it’s necessary for us to flush our bores to ensure you have clean water, we’ve heard your concerns about seeing the water go to waste so we’re going to use the water from our bore flushing today to fill a fire tanker for our parks and reserves team to use.
