Water Restrictions

March 20, 2020

Water restrictions remain in place for Marton and Taihape – the rest of the District is still okay, but all residents are encouraged to reduce water use.

Dam water levels are still low and work is due to start on repairing the spill way at the dam in the next 2 – 3 weeks - Water Restriction Level One stays in place.

Due to very low water levels to the stream that feeds the Taihape Water Reservoir - Level One Restrictions remain in place.

Council has implemented the following water restrictions:

Level 1 - Only handheld hose watering of gardens is allowed between 4pm and 8pm, daily. There will be a complete ban on the use of sprinklers at any time of the day.

Updates will be given regularly. Further restrictions will be implemented if necessary.
