Sprinkler Ban - effective from 5 December 2017

With the extreme dry conditions that South Wairarapa is currently experiencing, the water flow in the Ruamahanga and Waiohine Rivers are at a low level. 

With immediate effect sprinklers or other irrigation devices should not be used. 

Use of a handheld hose is permitted on alternate days: even numbered properties on even numbered dates and odd-numbered properties on odd numbered dates. 

Avoid water evaporation by watering your gardens early in the morning or early evening rather than in the heat of the day. 

Please help us conserve this very precious resource.
