We monitor and manage Palmerston North's water resource. When conditions are dry we may have to ration water supply. This helps us manage the demand for water, to ensure there will be enough for the essential needs of households, businesses, and public services.
We encourage residents to conserve water at every opportunity.
Every drop matters, especially in the dry season. There are loads of easy ways to use a bit less water â€“ and help make a big difference â€“ so please read on, pick something new that's simple for you, and be water-smarter this summer.
