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.

Dog owner responsibilities 

Waitomo District Council works to ensure dogs are appropriately managed, and:

  • to enable people to enjoy the benefits of dog ownership 
  • provide for the exercise and recreational needs of dogs and their owners
  • minimise danger, distress and nuisance to the community.

It is important to register your dog every year as part of being a responsible dog owner. Dog registration provides safety and security for dogs, owners and the community.

All dogs over the age of three months must be registered with Waitomo District Council by 31 July 2016. 

A 50% penalty fee will be applied to all unpaid registrations received after 31 July 2016.
