Auckland Council provides support for business and rural communities

Prolonged dry weather in the Auckland region has seen the introduction of mandatory water restrictions come into effect for those on reticulated water supply since Saturday 16 May.

The first stage of the restrictions bans the use of outdoor hoses and water-blasters. It also prohibits the watering of sports fields, plants and paddocks unless an irrigation system is fitted with soil moisture or rain sensors and it requires car wash businesses to operate only if they use recyclable water.

Non-potable water for business

To assist businesses with non-essential outdoor water use, Auckland Council has made alternative water supplies, (non-potable or non-drinking water) available; it is free to collect.

Water is available at the sites listed below, click here to view a map of non-potable water collection sites.
