Sprinkler restrictions still necessary on alternate days
The severe water shortages facing Waihi and Waikino have now eased thanks to many people listening to the calls to conserve water. But due to the continuing dry conditions Hauraki District Council is still asking people to conserve water use by only using sprinkler systems on alternate days.
If your address is an odd number, only water on odd days of the month, if your address is an even number, only water on even days of the month.
Hand-held hosing is fine, anytime.
All other parts of the district should continue to conserve water where you can.
Hauraki District Council says a big thank you to all their communities for being mindful of water use in these dry conditions.
