Total watering ban now in place for Coromandel Town

Total watering ban now in place for Coromandel Town


A Total Watering Ban is now in place for Coromandel Town. At the same time, Whitianga and Hahei remain on a Total Watering Ban. This means all use of water outside the house is banned. This includes watering lawns and gardens, washing cars, boats, houses, and decks, filling paddling pools and playing under sprinklers.

The small amount of rain is not enough to alter the restrictions. All other water use restrictions remain unchanged across the district, as outlined below:
Matarangi - Sprinkler Ban: This means a total ban on the use of all sprinkler, unattended hoses and irrigation systems. Hand-held hoses can be used on alternate days: If your address is an even number you can use your hose on even numbered days, and vice versa for odd numbered houses.

Whangamata, Onemana, Tairua, Pauanui - Alternate Days: This means hoses, sprinklers and garden irrigation systems can only be used on alternate days. If your address is an even number you can use your hose on even numbered days, and vice versa for odd numbered houses.

Thames - No Restrictions.

Water demand remains strong in all our communities and we ask that residents and visitors continue to comply with the restrictions and use water with restraint.
A reminder that Thames Valley has a permanent Total Watering Ban restriction.

Please report water wastage and water leaks to our Customer Services team on 07 868 0200.

What can I do to conserve water?
There are a number of simple ways in which we can reduce water use around the house while enjoying what the Coromandel has to offer.
Inside
• Fill the sink to wash vegetables and rinse dishes
• Turn the tap off while you are brushing your teeth
• Only use your dishwasher and washing machine when you have a full load
• Promote shorter showers and shallower baths
• Use a bowl to scrub vegetables in the kitchen sink. You can pour the water on your plants.
• Keep water in a covered jug in the fridge. It saves running the tap to get cold water.
• If the toilet leaks or a tap drips, fix it right away
Outside
• If you have to water the garden, do it in the early morning or evening to reduce evaporation
• Use a broom instead of the hose to clean paths and driveways
• Check taps, pipes, and connections regularly for possible leaks
• If you have rainwater storage, use this supply to water your garden or when you need to wash your car or boat
Holiday Habits
• Remind visitors and guests that water supplies are limited
• When washing your car, boat, trailer, jet ski etc. limit the use of your hose to a quick spray at the beginning then wash using a bucket. A running hose can waste as much as 10 litres of water a minute

Gordon Campbell: On National's Great Leap Backwards

It isn’t surprising that at the height of its disarray, National should have looked for certainty and picked the least introspective candidate on offer. With Judith Collins, there is absolutely no risk that the leader will suddenly have an angst attack about whether they’re really up to the job. You would have to go all the way back to Robert Muldoon to find a National Party leader less prone to self-doubt, and more willing to use fear as a weapon to maintain discipline within the rank and file...
