Water Restrictions

Stage 1

11 March 2019

There are no restrictions to all our Council water supply areas.

We would like to thank all our communities for being mindful of their water use over the hot, dry summer period.

We'll keep monitoring water use in our nine urban and two rural water supply schemes regularly and we're reviewing our water restrictions daily. Any changes are posted on our website, email newsletters and our Thames-Coromandel District Council Facebook page.

Please report water wastage and water leaks to Customer Service on 07 868 0200.

Top 5 smart water conservation tips

  • Wait until you can do full loads before you wash dishes or use the washing machine.
  • Don’t run the water when brushing your teeth.
  • For cool drinking water, fill a jug and keep it in the fridge. Running water to cool it down can waste 10 litres a minute.
  • For lawns, apply the ‘step test’ – if grass springs back after you walk on it, it doesn’t need watering.
  • If your toilet has a dual-flush button, use the half flush.
