Pahiatua asked to conserve water

Published 11 Sep 2023

Tararua District Council is asking Pahiatua residents to conserve water immediately due to the water treatment plant having a reduced capacity to produce treated water.

The treated water reservoir is at a critically low level and requires that residents reduce their water consumption immediately.

Residents and business are asked to defer any non-essential use like water blasting, car washing, garden watering, leaving taps running while brushing teeth etc.

Other ways to conserve water are to check for leaks and take shorter showers

Tararua District Council encourages Pahiatua residents to tell friends and family of the need to conserve water.

Water conservation techniques can be found on the Tararua District Council website at:

Tararua District Council is actively working on resolving this issue and will provide a further update tomorrow.
