Level 2 water restrictions went live today in Wellington, Lower Hutt and Porirua – want to know what that means for you?
From this date, all unattended watering systems are banned – i.e., sprinklers and irrigation systems.
You can water your garden by hand anytime, on any day, so long as you don’t leave your garden hose or watering device unattended.

We encourage you to find ways to use less water in your gardens during dry periods. You can do this by using mulch, watering your plants and trees only when necessary, and installing a trigger spray on your hose.
Tips to save water:
Water use in Porirua City is managed under the Porirua City Council General Bylaw 1991 Part 17 - Water Supply.
The Bylaw applies at all times throughout the year and is enforced particularly during summer and prolonged dry seasons.
Water restrictions are publicly notified in community and regional newspapers, local radio and television as appropriate in each case.
