Water supply update for Waitomo district

2 Feb 2015, 12:25 PM

Our district received some much needed rainfall over the weekend. However we consider it appropriate to continue with the current water alert level.

  • Level 2 restrictions are currently in place for all Waitomo District water supplies.

We urge residents to use water responsibly so there will be plenty of water available for all.

Level 2

Restrictions

  • Use sprinklers on alternate days between 6-8am and 6-8pm (e.g. even street numbers on even days; odd street numbers on odd days).
  • Hand held hosing is allowed at anytime. We recommend that gardens are watered in the early morning or evening to reduce evaporation.

 

Quick tips to save water:

  • Use a trigger nozzle on your hose to reduce water waste but remember to turn off the tap when you have finished.
  • Fix leaking taps, hoses and fittings.
  • Water your plants every fourth day, but water for longer periods. This encourages the roots to go deeper into the soil.
  • Use a broom and not a hose to wash paths and driveways.
