From 16 February 2015
Notice to all residents of the Hauraki District
River levels have continued to fall, making it necessary to restrict the use of water, in accordance with Council’s Water Supply Management Plan relating to
its consents to take water from rivers and streams.
For Waihi, Waikino, Mackaytown and Karangahake until further notice a ban is placed on the use of lawn and garden sprinklers. Only hand held hoses may be used until the situation improves.
If you see water leaks or excessive usage or wastage of water in your area, please report this to Council.
Information regarding ways residents can conserve water can be found on the Hauraki District Council website at www.hauraki-dc.govt.nz.
It may be necessary to increase the level of restriction if the dry weather period is extended. Your cooperation and efforts to conserve water now contribute to ensuring that water is available for essential and emergency needs.
