Christchurch residents restricted to watering gardens on alternate days

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The Christchurch City Council has imposed water restrictions to ensure there is enough water for firefighting, after residents used an average of 400 litres each on Wednesday.

Under level one restrictions, residents at odd-numbered addresses can use their hoses, sprinklers, and garden irrigation systems before 3pm or after 9pm on odd dates, with residents at even-numbered addresses doing so on even dates.

“Watering gardens and lawns using irrigation systems, hoses and sprinklers is the real challenge - washing the car using a bucket, using a watering can in the garden, or filling a small paddling pool, on any day, is fine under level one restrictions," head of three waters Helen Beaumont says.

Level two water restrictions were introduced last month in Akaroa, Duvauchelle and Takamatua on Banks Peninsula, as the streams that supply drinking water to those towns had been especially low.

Help! New rental needed to call home!

Katie from Avonside - Dallington

Hi all,
Just really throwing this out there on here as well. After 10yrs renting current property under an agency I need to move on by the end of Jan/start of feb due to house being sold!

We are looking for a minimum 2x bedroom, fully fenced secured yard to allow my old fat lazy dog and my beautiful child to play!

I have a FABULOUS reference from the agency with a high recommendation including the dog, who is sad to loose us as valued tenants.

Please if anyone hears or knows of any rentals becoming available over the next month (pet friendly) can you kindly let me know.
Much appreciated.

I hope everyone had a lovely Xmas and New Year.

Thank you in advance.
