Demand is still tracking pretty high for this time of year – just look at the level of demand this year compared to the past two years!*
Supply from rivers in Wainuiomata has dropped out, and now we’re using a lot more water from our storage lakes.
Lake usage has averaged about 41MLD over the last week, and levels have dropped 9% in the last week.
Catchments are still very dry, and there isn’t much rain on the forecast! Please continue to observe water restrictions until they come off, and of course, always use water wisely.
*These graphs indicate demand in Porirua, Wellington, Lower Hutt, and Upper Hutt.
Kia ora Wellington, it's time to dust off that old camera, get out and about and show the rest of your neighbours your favourite, treasured spots in your region. It could be an awesome view, the shy wildlife or even the old buildings that are wanting their stories to be told.
Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.
