Auckland's dam levels are almost at 67 per cent capacity, with restrictions easing for commercial operators.
A ban on outdoor hose and water blaster use for residential users remains in place. With an agreement allowing Auckland to take an extra 25 million litres a day, do you think that these household restrictions are necessary?

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?
April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.
Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.
The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.
You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Three locations of interest have been announced in relation to the Auckland Airport border worker who tested positive for Covid-19.
