Water warning in Blenheim

8:48 pm on 15 December 2008

Blenheim householders are being warned to reduce their water use or face tougher restrictions.

The town is on reduced supply as a pumping station undergoes repairs until February.

Marlborough District Council says there was too much hosing last weekend and water pressure dropped in hundreds of homes. It says that will happen again if people are not careful.

Hosing is already limited to alternate days and daily time restrictions could follow.
