Start con­serv­ing water now

Coastal News - - Front Page -

We could be in for a long, hot, dry sum­mer so the Thamescoro­man­del Dis­trict Coun­cil is start­ing now with early water con­ser­va­tion mes­sages.

A ra­dio cam­paign and water con­ser­va­tion signs are be­ing set up in places where sprin­kler and hose re­stric­tions are usu­ally re­quired, such as Tairua, Pauanui and Whanga­mata.

At the mo­ment there are no re­stric­tions but the coun­cil is re­port­ing high water use in sev­eral East­ern Seaboard sup­plies es­pe­cially in Whanga­mata, as vis­i­tors and hol­i­day-mak­ers start to ar­rive.

If water re­stric­tions need to be in­tro­duced they’ll be posted on the coun­cil’s Face­book page, an alert on the front page of the TCDC web­site and the water re­stric­tion page and you can also lis­ten out daily to Coro­man­del More FM.
