Time to Lighten Up --- get out your Christmas Lights

Maree from Waikanae Beach

I have put up our Christmas Lights -

I thought with Daylight Saving finishing, Easter coming and being Locked In/Down it was time to brighten up the neighbourhood.
I figure now is a better time than Christmas as it is dark earlier and most people have plenty of time spare to put them up!

Clear leaves away from stormwater drains before heavy rain

The Team from Wellington Water

Heavy rain and blocked stormwater drains = surface flooding 🌧🍂

So moving into autumn which typically brings heavy rain, alongside leaves falling and blocking drains, means our crews will be busy responding to flooding events - much like they were at the end of March.

Heavy rain and blocked stormwater drains = surface flooding 🌧🍂

So moving into autumn which typically brings heavy rain, alongside leaves falling and blocking drains, means our crews will be busy responding to flooding events - much like they were at the end of March.

You can help to reduce the amount of flooding by giving the drains in your street or on your property a sweep every now and then.

Easter weekend is looking a bit wet, so while you’re at home during this lockdown, why not get out and clear leaves and rubbish from on and around stormwater sumps?
