It's time to start saving water Wellington. ?
Every week our team of engineers gather to review the region's water use. The warm weather over the last week has seen a large spike in water use, as well as a drop in our river levels. ☀
The graph below shows that our available water supply is just meeting demand. It's important we all start using less water now so that we have plenty to get us through the summer period.
Thank you in advance for doing your bit so that we can have access to clean water all summer long.
You can find some easy tips on how to start saving water on our website ?
Karen Jones from Avalon, loves her two pets Ana and Mia.
"Although you can't tell they are sisters and they are now 13 years old and will be 14 this coming January. I brought them back from Australia with me when I came home to New Zealand. They are by my side every day. They love people, walks and treats. They were used to walking every day on the beach in Adelaide but here in Avalon the beach is too far away for us to walk to."
Remember if you want your pet featured on Neighbourly, email us on email@example.com with a recent photo. Please remember to say which suburb you live in.

"As a small city slicker, I don't see swamp harriers/kāhu (Circus approximans) that often (actually, I probably don't see them that often as we have falcons that live around here - the city raptor niche slot is full). We rumbled this one a couple of weekends ago feeding on some roadkill (as they do) on the gravel road to Boggy Pond in the Wairarapa. He was reluctant to go too far from his dinner, so I clicked a few shots as we walked past. Bird #58 in 2022."
