Taranaki water restrictions in force

12:47 pm on 12 December 2008

South Taranaki District Council hopes that rain forecast for next week will put an end to water restrictions there.

The council says recent dry weather has increased demand but a ban on the use of garden sprinklers and irrigation systems should help to avoid more serious restrictions.

The council says it is updating its water systems, and should have a new bore in operation by this time next year.
