Drought and Water Restrictions

Water levels 

Level 3 Water Restrictions are in place for the Dargaville and Baylys Beach supplied water networks as of 19 January 2022. The rest of the district remains unrestricted for now.

This decision comes off the back of a period of dry weather, low rainfall and no forecast rain in the foreseeable future. While the levels of water and number of people connected vary across Kaipara, this decision brings the whole district into alignment.

Please reduce your water use immediately at home and work, to protect our water supply.

These restrictions apply to all households and business on Council water supply.
