All water restrictions lifted

All water restrictions lifted

Friday, March 11, 2011

All partial water restrictions in South Taranaki have now been lifted says South Taranaki District Council’s engineering assets and planning manager Howard Wilkinson. 

“It’s been an extremely dry summer with many parts of the district getting less than half their usual rainfall,” says Mr Wilkinson. “But thanks to residents in Waimate West, Waverley, Waverley Beach, Wai-inu and Patea abiding to the partial water restrictions and the Council’s investment in our water infrastructure over the past few years there was no need to move to further restrictions,” he says.

“I hope that even though the partial water restrictions have now been lifted that residents will continue to think about the way they use water and use it sensibly throughout the year,” says Mr Wilkinson.
