Water Restrictions

If any time the Council considers that because of drought or for any other reason the available water supply is not sufficient to allow the unrestricted consumption of water, and that extraordinary measures are necessary in order to conserve such available water supply, Council may by resolution publicly notified, and until public notice of the rescission of such resolution has been given, restrict or prohibit the use of water whether an ordinary or extraordinary supply for any specified purpose or for any specified period or may restrict the quantity which may be used. Any such restriction or prohibition may apply to the whole of the district or if the circumstances so require to a portion only of the district.

There are Water Status signs displayed around Dargaville which allows you to view the status of water restrictions.
