A ban is hereby placed on the use of the Council water supply schemes at Kerikeri, Paihia/Opua and Okaihau for the following purposes:
- All non-handheld hosepipe use
- All irrigation and sprinkler use
This ban is required due to continued lack of significant rainfall for the district over recent months putting pressure on water sources, as well as increased public demand over the summer period.

The Far North District Council urges all residents to conserve water. For more information on the restrictions, including applications for exemption to these restrictions, please refer to the Water Supply section of www.fndc.govt.nz or free phone 0800 920 029.
