WATER RESTRICTIONS UPDATE:


 Phase B Water Restrictions implemented for Richmond, Hope, and Māpua urban water users -  Phase D remains for other areas 

12 January, 2024


Tasman District Council has announced that Phase B Water Restrictions will be implemented with immediate effect for users of Council-managed reticulated water supplies in Richmond, Hope and Māpua/ Ruby Bay.


However, those in Wakefield, Brightwater, Redwood Valley 1 and 2, Dovedale and Eighty-Eight Valley will remain at Phase D at this stage.


Nelson residents living adjacent to Champion Road, Wakatu Industrial Estate, and parts of Saxton Road West, where water is supplied from the Richmond Water Supply Scheme, will also move to Phase B water restrictions.


The Wakefield and Brightwater Phase D restrictions remain as we continue to investigate and resolve the two issues affecting the Wakefield Treatment Plant.

 

The samples that we have taken are being analysed under urgency and we expect to receive results next week.


We're extremely grateful for the community's assistance in recent weeks and we appreciate your ongoing efforts in the days ahead.


With dry weather set to continue, there is no harm in saving water where you can, no matter what part of Tasman you live in.


As a recap for those subject to Phase B restrictions:


• You can't water the lawn, fill or top up a pool, spa or water feature, or use water for play.

• You can still do outdoor washing (cars, windows, outdoor areas) with a hand-held hose fitted with a trigger nozzle, water blaster or bucket.

• Flowers/trees/planters can be watered every second day only with a hand-held hose fitted with a trigger nozzle, watering systems on a timer or a bucket.

• Veggie gardens and fruit trees can be watered with a hand-held hose fitted with a trigger nozzle, watering systems on a timer, or a bucket.


As for those in Phase D:

You CAN: 

  • Wash your car using recycled grey water only. 
  • Do essential outdoor washing for safety reasons, using a bucket only. 
  • Water listed protected trees every second day only with a hand held hose fitted with a trigger nozzle, watering systems on a timer or a bucket. 
  • Water your veggie garden and fruit trees every second day using a bucket only. 

You CAN'T: 

  • Water your flowers/trees/planters. 
  • Water the lawn. 
  • Fill or top up a pool, spa or water feature.
