What's your water footprint?

Love Every Drop 

Every season poses it's own issues when it comes to water use, wastage, and infrastructure.

We had some pretty hot summers here in Wellington over the past few years, with demand for water going up as supply goes down. We have garden watering restrictions in place during daylight savings, with potential bans being put in place if demand continues to increase. 

We're expecting another hot summer, so it's important to continue to conserve water now!

Find out where your water comes from, and why it's important to Love Every Drop all year round.

Garden Watering Restrictions

Garden watering restrictions apply during daylight saving months (September – April) in Lower Hutt, Porirua and Wellington, and are all year-round for Upper Hutt, and South Wairarapa.

These are base-level restrictions and can be increased depending on demand and supply around the region.

These restrictions relate to council bylaws and non-compliance can result in prosecution.
