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.

Every pilot has a special attachment to their first aircraft and that was no doubt the case with the Duke of Edinburgh.
Prince Philip, who died on Friday aged 99, first earned his wings in a de Havilland Chipmunk two-seater that still frequently takes to the air over Wairarapa.
It's current owner, Masterton pilot Bevan Dewes, 27, was a similar age to the duke when the then 30-year-old embarked on his training with the Royal Air Force (RAF) in 1952.
The Chipmunk, now housed in a hangar at Hood Aerodrome, proudly bears the royal insignia and Dewes has pulled together a fascinating dossier of its former life, including letters from the prince.

Is that a teahouse on Stewart Island?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.
