It's not a health issue and our water team are rechecking the filter system.

Whitianga - Current sprinkler and irrigation ban in remains in place.

Thames Valley (including Hikutaia, Omaha, Puriri and Matatoki) - Due to an increase in usage; water restrictions are being introduced effective immediately. This means that there is a sprinkler and irrigation ban in place. A reminder to residents in these communities that there is a permanent irrigation ban in place all year round.

We're checking water use in our nine urban and two rural water supply schemes regularly and reviewing our water restrictions daily.

Our water restrictions are reviewed daily and any changes are posted on our website, email newsletters and our Facebook page.

Residents and visitors are asked to comply with the water restrictions for the good of the community.

Top 5 smart water conservation tips

Wait until you can do full loads before you wash dishes or use the washing machine.
Don’t run the water when brushing your teeth.
For cool drinking water, fill a jug and keep it in the fridge. Running water to cool it down can waste 10 litres a minute.
For lawns, apply the ‘step test’ – if grass springs back after you walk on it, it doesn’t need watering.
If your toilet has a dual flush button, use the half flush.
