IMPORTANT MESSAGE for Featherston residents on town water supply

Amy Wharram from South Wairarapa District Council

8.30am, Sunday 12 December - Update - The water plant worked overnight to refill the reservoir so residents can use water as normal now.

With all the rain today we don't expect people to be watering their gardens anyway, and the alternate days watering policy still applies - odd number properties on odd number days and evens on evens. Thank you to those who shared the message last night.
...................................
Original message - Please minimise water use as much as possible overnight. We have a Wellington Water technician at the supply plant monitoring things closely, following an issue with the plant stopping. It takes 4 hours to get the plant started again so it would be helpful if residents could limit water use to essential use only until everything is back to normal. We'll share a further update in the morning. Thanks for your co-operation.
