Summer’s here! Be water smart

The Team from Smart Water

Water-saving tips to help you reduce your water use

Gardening
- Water early morning or late evening to prevent 70% of water evaporating.
- Give your plants a good long soak twice a week rather than a short daily water. You will encourage deeper, healthier roots.
- Use a digital water timer with a rain sensor– it switches on only when needed.  

Pool
- Use a cover to prevent evaporation and keep the water warm
- Keep your pool clean, wipe your feet before you jump in.

Play your part. We value wai in the Waikato.

How do you feel about a second petrol station opening in Whangamata?

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Hauraki Herald

Hi neighbours,
We have some news to share!
Waitomo Fuel have just had their resource consent granted to open up a petrol station on Casement Rd, Whangamata.
The news comes just days after we reported on the high petrol prices in the town here.
So who do you feel about this news and will it change your petrol buying behaviour?
