Now, when you can use sprinklers/irrigation systems is set by whether you live in an odd or even numbered house. You can use attended handheld watering devices at any time.

Water is a precious resource. We help ensure that we have enough clean, fresh water today and in the future. 

Water is one of the most precious taonga in Aotearoa. Not only do our waterways provide drinking water and support for industries such as farming and tourism, but they are also valued for mahinga kai, education, tourism, and ecological health.

In the Wellington Region we love to enjoy our coast and waterways, but there are some times and places where caution is needed.

Whaitua committees are groups of local people tasked with recommending ways to maintain and improve the quality of our fresh water. Whaitua is the Māori word for space or catchment.
