Start conserving water now
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.
