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 10 January 2017 until further notice.
Prohibited Fire Season Public Notice
Water Restrictions Notice

Due to low rainfall 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 notice.
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.

Please note
Kaipara District Council has granted a ‘Permit to Use Water’ for the Dargaville Ford Company and Harrison Contractors to enable them to run sprinklers on the demolition site in Normanby Street, Dargaville.

Dargaville Ford has been requested to source a non-potable water supply in the near future. The sprinklers will run continuously until the demolition is completed to ensure the demolition material is kept wet at all times which is being enforced by WorkSafe NZ.

Any queries regarding the use of water on this site can be directed to either Brian Armstrong (extension 768) or Magnus Viljoen (extension 676) at Kaipara District Council.
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 Council's Customer Services Team on 0800 727 059.
