Act now to beat the water shortage:
• Install a rainwater tank (resource consent fees waived).
• Maintain your tank (check guttering is clear).
• Install water saving devices (shower head/taps).
• Install a water sensor to monitor your usage.
Aucklanders will see their rates bills soar 5 per cent to help counteract a $1 billion fall in council revenue over the next four years.
The one-off hike, up from a planned 3.5 per cent increase, will add $36 to the rates bill of an average value home before annual increases return to the previous path of 3.5 per cent rises.
The proposed increase is included in the update of Auckland Council's 10-year budget, which starts in July.

All seven council-owned splashpads across Tāmaki Makaurau will be open over the summer, despite water restrictions in place due to the drought.
Meanwhile, locals will be pinged for using a hose without the correct nozzle.
The council says splashpads recycle a high percentage of water, and the centres themselves have made significant water savings in the last nine months.
Do you support council turning on splashpads in the drought?
