At Water Restriction Level 2 sprinklers and irrigation systems are banned, but handheld watering devices can be used at any time, so long as they’re not left unattended.

Water is a precious resource. We help ensure that we have enough clean, fresh water today and in the future. 

Water is one of the most precious taonga in Aotearoa. Not only do our waterways provide drinking water and support for industries such as farming and tourism, but they are also valued for mahinga kai, education, tourism, and ecological health

In the Wellington Region we love to enjoy our coast and waterways, but there are some times and places where caution is needed.

Whaitua committees are groups of local people tasked with recommending ways to maintain and improve the quality of our fresh water. Whaitua is the Māori word for space or catchment.
