Watercare Drought Update: 27 June
We are delighted to see significant rain has fallen overnight in our western catchment—and now total dam storage is at 51.3 per cent. They were last at this level on 8 April.
Our southern dams, in the Hūnua Ranges do however still need significantly more rainfall and we’d like to encourage Aucklanders to continue with their water conservation efforts.
