Current water restrictionsNgā rāhui wai

Water restrictions apply to all residential and commercial users, limiting water use to essential activities only.
For commercial users, general maintenance activities that require water are not restricted unless a full irrigation ban is in place.
Under a full irrigation ban, commercial users can continue to use water for activities that are essential to their normal business operation.
