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.
Rubbish and recycling collections are continuing as normal, but please note that collections for Good Friday, 10 April, will take place on Saturday 11 April instead. This applies to people living in Otumoetai, Bureta, Matua, Brookfield, Bellevue, Judea North and Bethlehem North.
While it may not quite feel like a holiday this year, we hope you’ll find a way to enjoy this Easter.
Take care, stay safe, stay home.
During the lockdown it’s important that we don’t spend a lot of time going to and from the supermarket.
Simply storing your food well can keep it fresher for longer, reducing how often you need to leave the house to restock on supplies.
