Level 1 water restrictions went live today in Wellington, Lower Hutt and Porirua - want to know what that means for you?
Level 1 is our lowest water restriction level, and asks all residents to only use sprinklers and irrigation systems every second day, between 6-8am and 7-9pm.
Even-numbered houses can use their sprinklers on even-numbered days, and odd-numbered houses on odd-numbered days.
You can water your garden by hand any time, on any day - so long as it's not left unattended.

🚨This will take effect from 26 September 2022.🚨
👉 You can use handheld watering devices any time, on any day, so long as you don’t leave them unattended.
Alternate day watering still applies - even numbered properties on even numbered dates and odd numbered properties on odd numbered dates.
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.
