Latest update on Tararua District water supplies

29 May 2020:

Last of the water restrictions lifted for Tararua District

There are no current water restrictions across the Tararua District.

Woodville residents can celebrate this long weekend with the lifting of the Alternate Day water restrictions, effective immediately. The Woodville catchment has had significant rainfall and Council is confident that supply is at a level where restrictions can be lifted.

The community’s commitment to reducing water use over the course of the drought was incredible. Te collective efforts of each individual in our district meant that between the months of March and May, no towns reached a point where Council needed to impose “essential use only” restriction. Thank you to each and every person, business and community that did their part to save water during one of the worst droughts ever recorded in Tararua District’s history.
