The Ashburton District Council is advising residents of a water restriction now in place throughout the district. The restriction means residents can only use a hose, micro-spray or automatic irrigation system on alternate days, and in some areas, during specific time periods, to help conserve water.

"The Water restriction policy ensures conservation of water to even out demand which enables residents to continue to enjoy reasonable use of water for gardening and non-essential purposes," he added.
Ashburton District Council advises residents connected to the following Council water schemes that in accordance with Council’s water restriction policy the following restrictions are in place effective immediately until further notice:
The restriction will remain in place until further notice.
