As water usage has been extreme and the forecast is hot and dry, a sprinkler ban has now been put in place for our city.
From today, the use of all sprinklers and irrigation systems is banned until further notice.
You can still water your garden, by hand, between 5 and 8AM and 7 and 10PM.

Let’s make every drop count.
It's been a mixed summer so far for New Zealand. Much of the country has seen record breaking temperatures, drought-conditions and scrub fires. But in recent days the West Coast and Southland have experienced heavy rains, flooding, evacuations and closed roads. Our thoughts are with affected.
Our skies have been coloured by smoke blown over from the Australian bushfires, meanwhile Wellingtonians are just stoked if they get to see the sun.
How has your summer been?
Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.
If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.
Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.
