Water restrictions in place for Stratford

Add to favourites

The recent dry weather in Central Taranaki has finally taken its toll on the Stratford water supply.

Stratford District Council have imposed water restrictions from today, Wednesday 3 February 2021.

“River levels have dropped below the point where we need to reduce the amount of water we take from the Pātea River to ensure stream health,” says Chief Executive Sven Hanne.

The water restrictions apply to those using the Stratford, Toko or Midhirst water supply, and mean a total ban on sprinkler and irrigation systems, and on unattended hoses. Handheld hoses can be used depending on your house number. Even numbered houses on even days and odd numbered houses on odd days.

Residents are asked to help conserve water by turning off taps and fixing leaking taps and pipes.

The restrictions remain in place until further notice.
