District Council Service Delivery Group Manager Neil McCann says the
restriction has been put in place to provide as much relief to the bore as
Mayfield water supply has been under pressure for a while now, and as we move
into another dry summer, it is critical that residents restrict their water use,
particularly around their gardens.”
residents are advised to use a bucket or watering can if they wish to water
their plants, however hoses will not be permitted.
McCann says Council will shortly begin a water metering pilot project in Mayfield
to help Council and residents identify water use issues and what can be done to
improve water sustainability.
the restrictions setting in, we encourage the Mayfield community to check their
property for any leaking pipes or taps, and to get these fixed as soon as
possible. Once the water metering project is working, Council will be able to
start helping residents determine if they have any water leaks that they may
not be aware of.”
will continue to monitor the Mayfield water supply and will advise the
community of any updates or changes to the water restrictions.
greatly appreciate the community’s cooperation during these restrictions and
are thankful to Mayfield residents for their efforts to reduce water wastage,”
Mr McCann adds.
