Public Notices

Prohibited Fire Season

Pursuant to Section 22(2) of the Forest and Rural Fires Act 1977 the Rural Fire Authorities of Kaipara District Council, Whangarei District Council and the Department of Conservation, hereby declare a Prohibited Fire Season to be in force from midnight Tuesday 10th January 2017, until further notice.
Prohibited Fire Season Public Notice
Water Restrictions Notice

Due to low rain fall across the Dargaville area since the start of
summer and a heavy demand on water resources, there is a ban
effective immediately for all those connected to the Dargaville and
Baylys Beach public water supply for the following purposes:
• All hosepipe use
• All irrigation and sprinkler use
The ban is effective immediately and will remain in place until further
Water restrictions are a necessary precaution to delay the need for
more stringent restrictions so we need to conserve water now to avoid
shortages over the next couple of months.
The Kaipara District Council urges all residents to conserve water to
ensure that water supplies for essential household purposes can be
maintained. Council is also asking rural households not connected
to water supplies to conserve water, because the bulk water suppliers
who top up their water tanks depend on the Council’s community
supplies for their water.

Water Conservation Notice

As the dry weather continues Council is urging all residents to think about how they can conserve water. Everyone can help save water by using some of the following tips:
  • Minimal use of garden sprinklers and hoses
  • Avoid washing vehicles
  • Not filling swimming pools
  • Check that taps are not dripping.
For more information please contact the Council's Customer Services Team on 0800 727 059.
