Water restrictions lifted for Masterton

Masterton District Council has thanked the local community for its water conservation efforts as its lifted water restrictions following much-needed rainfall last week.

Council Project Delivery & Assets Manager, Phil Evans said it had been one of the driest periods in recent memory for the district.

“We restricted garden sprinklers to alternate days in December due to low flows in the Waingawa River, the source of Masterton’s drinking water,” he said.

“The ongoing lack of rain until this week has meant maintaining that restriction until now.

“We have now lifted restrictions, and thank gardeners for their water conservation efforts. But we encourage everyone to continue careful use of water – it is a precious resource and we need to preserve the health of the river.”
