WATER RESTRICTIONS FOR MATAMATA
Matamata’s water supply is expected to come under pressure.
The town is on level one restriction, at which residents are encouraged to conserve water. The Matamata-Piako District council’s website has many tips on how to do that, including turning off the shower when you are washing your hair or shaving.
Matamata has four water restriction levels, with level four meaning all use of water outside the house is banned. coffee you buy at O’del’emz will see a donation given to the town’s hospital.
Pohlen Foundation trustee Stu Koch originally came across the idea.
A good friend suggested a cafe in Hamilton which picks out a charity once a month.
The promotion is open to any businesses wanting to take part.
It was just taking the idea and localising, he said.
