Current water restrictionsNgā rāhui wai

Water restrictions apply to all residential and commercial users and apply to the use of water for anything other than essential activities.
For commercial properties, general maintenance activities that require water are not restricted unless a full irrigation ban is in place.
Even with a full irrigation ban, commercial users can still use water considered to be part of their normal business operation.

Hand-held hoses can be used on alternate days between 6am and 8am, and 7pm and 9pm only.
