About the drought
Since the beginning of 2020, Auckland has received significantly less rainfall than normal. This has had a big impact on our water supply. On 15th April 2020, the total volume of water stored in our dams dropped below 50 per cent for the first time in more than 25 years. We need to preserve what’s left. Please use water wisely and reduce wastage of this precious resource by:
- Keeping your showers short (four minutes or less)
- Run your washing machine and dishwasher only when they’re full
- Don’t wash your car
- Don’t water blast your house
- Don’t hose your lawn
