Mayfield Level Four water restriction eased


Thursday 10 August, 2017

Residents on the Mayfield water scheme can now use hand-held hoses from today, as Ashburton District Council relaxes the Level Four water restriction in place to a Level Three.

Under the new restriction, hand-held hosing is permitted on alternate days between the hours of 6pm and midnight.

“We have tentatively decided to ease the restriction for Mayfield because the bore water level has been steadily increasing over the last few months,” Council Assets Manager Andrew Guthrie says.

“The Mayfield community has been very understanding during the last 10 months when the Level Four restriction was put in place, and we acknowledge their assistance in conserving the water as best as possible.”

Council issued a Level Four water restriction for Mayfield in October last year, when low water levels were detected. Council encouraged residents to check for water leaks around their properties, and also introduced water meters to help identify any major leaks.

Details on the hosing schedule for a Level Three water restriction are available on the Council website.
