A ban is hereby placed on the use of the Council water supply scheme at Opononi and Omapere for the following purposes:
- All hosepipe use
- All irrigation and sprinkler use
- Water blasting
- Filling swimming pools from mains supply
This ban is required due to the low amount of rainfall experienced across the region recently resulting in reduced river levels, as well as the increased demand on public water during the summer season.
This notice applies to the area serviced by the Opononi / Omapere water supply scheme effective immediately and will remain in place until further notice.
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.
This Notice is issued pursuant to clause 710 of the Far North District Council General Bylaw, Chapter 7 - Water Supply.
