Water issues in Tahuna and Te Poi

level 1 sign

With the dry weather continuing, we are seeing stress on our water treatment plants, and today this has extended to Tahuna. We have topped up the Tahuna reservoir with tankered water, but there is still a need to conserve water in Tahuna if you are not going to face watering restrictions.

At the other end of the district, the water treatment plant in Te Poi is struggling to keep up with very high water consumption over the last five days. Te Poi residents are being asked to save water to ensure we do not have to put on watering restrictions. Please let us know if there are any leaks or unnecessary water use.
