Wellington’s sprinkler ban has been lifted– but with sporadic rain forecast for winter residents still need to avoid wasting water.
The restrictions were put in place for the Hutt Valley, South Wairarapa, Wellington city and Porirua in mid-February as water usage soared during the summer months.
From Tuesday, residents in Lower Hutt, Porirua and Wellington city can again use sprinklers and irrigation systems, Wellington Water said. In Upper Hutt and South Wairarapa people can do so every second day, as is usual.
Most of the Wellington region’s drinking water comes from rivers and the Waiwhetu aquifer under the Hutt Valley. River levels fell to 90 per cent before the sprinkler ban.
Meanwhile, people in the Wairarapa town of Carterton still have to boil their water after E. coli bacteria was found in the water supply on March 12.

"It's often as hard to get one of these sitting down as it is to get one in flight. Welcome swallow/warou (Hirundo neoxena). The pink background is caused by the colourful pink aquatic weeds on the fresh water pond at Pauatahanui. Usually hawking in a circuit over the pond, one of the swallows rested briefly to have a good stretch on a stick poking out of the water."

Pūkaha Junior Rangers is a school holiday program with a conservation focus. It's a chance for 5-14-year-olds to experience hands-on learning in Pūkaha's nature reserve. Junior Rangers get up close to wildlife and get to feed the tuna (long-finned eels). They also learn about the ngahere (forest) and how the captive breeding programme at Pūkaha is helping to protect and restore Aotearoa's precious native species. Fun and educational.
