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 ?

Hi Neighbour,

How well do you know your customers? That might seem like a redundant question but let’s dig a little deeper.

As you answer these questions (and as many others as you can come up with) you’ll start to build clear customer personas that will help you tailor the experience you provide to fit the needs of your customers.

We’ve got a whole series of bite-sized videos on customer personas and customer experience waiting for you over on our website, so if 2022 is the year you take your business to the next level head on over and get started today!

We couldn’t do this without the help of many generous and kind people and organisations. One of these organisations is Project Village (Lagi Finau), who made up some amazing gift packs for lonely and isolated seniors in time for Christmas.

So, on the last working day in December, our CEO Stephen Opie and Social Connection Coordinator Kirsten Blyde spent the day delivering the gift packs all over town. “It was great to spread a little Christmas cheer a couple of days before Christmas. Some even said that this was probably the only gift they would receive,” Stephen said.

Thank you Project Village for caring for our Region’s seniors!
