We Say, You Say: Water Conservation

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hauraki Herald

Hi there Coromandel,

What are some of your water conservation tips and tricks?

The Thames-Coromandel District Council is enforcing a sprinkler ban while water levels suffer as a result of the influx of domestic tourists visiting the region. Whitianga recorded its hottest temperature in January since records began in 1962 with high temperatures also recorded in the Firth of Thames.

The council's Emergency Management Unit Manager Garry Towler said that while there'd be some rain and moderate downpours forecast from now until February, it would not be enough to ease restrictions. "We also have the latest data from the Waikato Regional Council to indicate the summer dry period will have long legs and extend through March and into April."

Share your water conservation tips and hacks below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of the Hauraki Herald.
