Water restrictions

We monitor and manage Palmerston North's water resource. When conditions are dry we may have to ration water supply.

Restrictions help to manage the demand for water and promote watering during the cooler time of the day. If everyone waters wisely we hope to avoid water shortages over the summer months.

There are currently no water restrictions in place in Palmerston North city, Ashhurst, Bunnythorpe, Linton and Longburn.

Even though water levels in the city are healthy and the amount of water being used by households and industry is stable, we remind residents to please use water wisely at all times.
