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.
The good weather and it being school holidays, makes it easier to get roadworks done during this time of year. That's why you will have seen more road maintenance activities across the city as we undertake much needed roading repairs.
Also the work on our Safety Improvements Programme increases over summer. This programme covers transport projects under $1 million that have been identified as a safety concern by the community, NZ Police and council. Think of new pedestrian crossings, minor intersection changes and reducing speeds through traffic calming such as speed humps and small roundabouts.
