A total watering ban is now in place in Waihi and Waikino

"River levels in Waihi and Waikino are low and we need to save water now," says a spokesperson for the Hauraki District Council.

"The ban includes all use of water outside the house such as watering lawns and gardens, washing cars, houses and decks, filling paddling pools or playing under sprinklers.

"All other parts of the district are asked to please continue to save water where they can."

"We appreciate everyone’s help to conserve water as this dry weather continues."

Meanwhile, there is now a total watering ban in place for Coromandel Town.

At the same time, Whitianga and Hahei remain on a Total Watering Ban.

This means all use of water outside the house is banned. This includes watering lawns and gardens, washing cars, boats, houses, and decks, filling paddling pools and playing under sprinklers.

The small amount of rain is not enough to alter the restrictions. All other water use restrictions remain unchanged across the district, as outlined below:

Matarangi - Sprinkler Ban: This means a total ban on the use of all sprinkler, unattended hoses and irrigation systems. Hand-held hoses can be used on alternate days: If your address is an even number you can use your hose on even numbered days, and vice versa for odd numbered houses.

Whangamata, Onemana, Tairua, Pauanui - Alternate Days: This means hoses, sprinklers and garden irrigation systems can only be used on alternate days. If your address is an even number you can use your hose on even numbered days, and vice versa for odd numbered houses.

Thames - No Restrictions.

Water demand remains strong in all our communities and we ask that residents and visitors continue to comply with the restrictions and use water with restraint.

A reminder that Thames Valley has a permanent Total Watering Ban restriction.
