Water restriction level 4 for Te Kuiti

11 May 2016

Te Kuiti is currently on Water Restriction Level 4.

Waitomo District Council’s project to upgrade the Te Kuiti Water Treatment Plant (WTP) continues. We are seeking the cooperation of Te Kuiti residents and businesses to conserve water and be mindful of the work underway. 

It is very important that we achieve as much water savings as possible during this time, to assist with the continued provision of a safe water supply for Te Kuiti.

The water restriction requires that residents and businesses do not use water for non-essential purposes. This includes activities such as:

  • Washing vehicles,
  • Filling of swimming pools
  • Washing/ water blasting of building exteriors and footpaths
  • Using hoses for clean up
  • Irrigation of lawns or gardens

Check for water leaks in pipes, hoses and faucets and fix them right away. As much as 14,000 litres of water a day can be wasted through a hole the size of a small nail.

If you have a concern about a water leak on public property, please call our friendly Customer Services Team immediately on 0800 932 4357.

Your effort to conserve water and reduce water wastage is greatly appreciated.
