Notice: Water restrictions eased

4 March 2022

As summer comes to an end, so too are Level 2 water restrictions for South Wairarapa.

As one of Wellington Water Ltd’s six council clients, the South Wairarapa District Council has made the decision to move to Water Restriction Level 1.

“We’d like to thank everyone for doing their bit throughout Level 2 restrictions. Your efforts, together with some good rainfall, has enabled us to move down to Level 1 more quickly than expected this year, and we really appreciate it,” says Wellington Water’s Chief Advisor Drinking Water Laurence Edwards.

Under Level 1, if you live in an even numbered house, you can use sprinklers or irrigation systems only on even numbered days between 6-8am and 7-9pm. If you live in an odd numbered house, the same rules apply for odd numbered days. 

You can use handheld watering devices any time, on any day, so long as you don’t leave them unattended.

Water restriction Level 1 applies all year round for South Wairarapa (Martinborough, Greytown and Featherston).
