Banks Peninsula water conservation advised during bad weather
Christchurch City Council is asking residents in the Banks Peninsula region to be mindful with water use throughout the expected bad weather over the next three days.
Tim Joyce, Contracts Manager for City Water and Waste Unit says, "We ask residents to use water sparingly in the Akaroa harbour area, Pigeon Bay and Little River for the next three days. Some water reserves are nearing critical levels as the prolonged inclement weather has and will continue to make the taking of water clean enough to treat from the flooded streams difficult."
