Please Conserve Water
The water use on many Council supplies has increased substantially
over recent weeks as the temperatures have increased. We have
already experienced very high demand on the Rangiora, Woodend
and Oxford Urban supplies and the infrastructure has been stretched
on some of our smaller water supplies.
This is because the supplies have been unable to cope with the
large amounts of water being used for watering gardens and lawns.
While we appreciate people like to water their gardens, please use
the water wisely especially on hot summer days.
As part of our ongoing Water Conservation Strategy, Council is
carrying out leak reduction work on its water supplies throughout
the district. This strategy aims to achieve higher levels of water
conservation within the Waimakariri District Council community
Our water is too precious to waste, so please use it wisely. If
everyone does their bit to save water, we may avoid the need to
apply water restrictions this summer.
