Immediate Water Conservation needed for Waimate West Water Supply

Farmers on the Waimate West Water Supply are being asked to urgently conserve water.

Last night severe weather conditions caused problems at Waimate West Treatment Plant so it has been temporarily shut down.

The reservoir levels are currently at 13% and dropping, so residents on the scheme need to conserve water immediately so water doesn’t run out and the reservoirs can replenish over the weekend.

For further information, please contact the Council on 0800 111 323. If you would like some tips and hints on how to conserve water, click here.
