Our aim over summer is to manage the demand for water, as best as possible, to ensure we can meet the essential needs of households, businesses and public services.

The water alerts for the Waitomo district are:

  • Te Kuiti, Piopio and Benneydale Water Supplies - Level 1 Conversation. Use sprinklers between 6-8am and 6-8pm. Hand-held hosing is allowed anytime.
  • Mokau Water Supply - Level 4 Restriction. Essential water use only (ban on outdoor use).
