Auckland Council provides support for rural communities during dry weather

Prolonged dry weather in the Auckland region is putting pressure on water supplies for rural residents.

Tips for saving water

Watercare notes that Auckland’s metropolitan water supply situation is stable, with no restrictions in place. However, it is encouraging people to use water wisely, especially on hot days when they tend to use more than normal.

Visit the Watercare website.

See below to find out where you can fill water containers. This page also contains information about tank water supply in Auckland, links to water-saving tips and FAQs about water. 

Community water collection sites 

During Level 4 Lockdown all water supply sites remain open in our rural areas as these are essential services to our communities.

Observe social distancing, wash your hands as soon as possible and stay in your bubble.

Water continues to be available to be collected for domestic use at the sites listed below.

  • People can take up to 30L of water per person in their household per day, in handheld containers
  • Some sites have taps on buildings
  • Others have taps running from stand-alone (static) tanks - these may be temporary tanks or existing tanks already on site
  • Please turn taps off after use
  • Report any issues to Auckland Council on 09 301 0101 (referencing the location)
  • Read our advice on filling and storing water containers here.
  • Read our advice for tank owners here
