Water for Life

Our Water for Life website provides stories and information about the water that sustains our growing city. The website was launched in 2020 when Auckland was in the grips of the region's worst drought on record. With our total water storage nowhere near where it should be, we still need everyone to save water, and that’s where Water for Life comes in.

In this section of our information hub, you'll learn how to get started on your water saving journey.
