Heavy Rain Watch - What you need to know

Metservice NZ has issued a Heavy Rain Watch for the Waikato region, in place from 2am–3pm, Wednesday 1 February.

Given the large amount of rainfall that our district has experienced over the past few days, we are urging residents to continue to take care and stay aware of the conditions in their area. Further rainfall could quickly exacerbate existing slips, river levels and produce further flooding quite quickly.

Water Supply Update

10 Apr 2014, 10:29 AM

The district has received some much needed rainfall overnight and early this morning. Water levels in all areas have improved, besides the Mokau/ Awakino supply. Mokau has received some rain, but it is too early to tell what influence it will have on the discoloured water issue that has developed due to the very low level of raw water in the storage dams. Therefore the Water Alert Level 2 Restrictions still apply for Mokau/ Awakino communities.

Benneydale, Piopio and Te Kuiti will remain on Water Alert Level 1 Conservation for now.
