LEVEL 4 WATER RESTRICTIONS - TE KUITI
ESSENTIAL USE ONLY
A water main has burst in Te Kuiti overnight, and has depleted the town reservoir. PLEASE CONSERVE WATER IMMEDIATELY.
Level 4 Water Restrictions mean:
- No use of outside water systems (including sprinklers, drip lines, soaker hoses and any other irrigation systems).
- No use of hoses.
- No filling or top-ups to swimming pools (including portable and paddling pools).
- No outdoor cleaning (including cars).
- No outdoor water toys (including slip and slides and toys that attach to hoses).
The only permitted way to water your garden at alert level 4 is to use collected rain water and/or re-use greywater from inside your home (e.g. used shower water or left-over water from cooking and washing).
Essential use outside means water may be used for activities like firefighting and emergency clean ups.
Essential use inside your home means that you may use water for drinking, food preparation, hygiene and sanitary purposes only (including washing clothes and taking showers).
