How much water do you use?

Watercare

Every day, we use water for drinking, bathing, cleaning, cooking and gardening.

Water flows so freely from our taps that we don’t give it a second thought. Every drop has been on an incredible journey from the water source to the treatment plant, several reservoirs and pipes.

Water flows so freely from our taps that we don’t give it a second thought. Every drop has been on an incredible journey from the water source to the treatment plant, several reservoirs and pipes.

This means tap water is precious, so we’re encouraging Aucklanders to use water wisely.

You can find a number of water-wise tips at waterforlife.org.nz. But, before you do that ponder this, how much water do you think Aucklanders use every day? Click on the video below to find out!

Drought is affecting Rodney’s metal roads

Communications Team from Auckland Transport

The metal roads in Rodney are facing a tough time because of the long dry spell and inability to source water for grading.

Auckland Transport’s Road Corridor Delivery Manager North Len van der Harst says the effects will last until at least the end of the drought.

“The ground is so dry and hard we can’t grade the roads to remove corrugations and potholes because we rely on a level of ground moisture and ability to use watering trucks to wet the surface allowing the graded metal to bind and bond with the sub-surface of the road”.

“We share the frustration of the Rodney community, but unfortunately there isn’t much we can do while it is this dry and no water available for grading”.

He asks that motorists be patient, keep speed down, safely drive to the conditions and report any dangerous areas to AT.

If you have a problem with your road you can fill-in the feedback form on the Auckland Transport website: at.govt.nz...

We want March to be all about celebrating the connections we have while making new ones along the way. As we all know, what makes a neighbourhood great isn’t the houses and cars, gardens and streets - it’s the people who share their presence and aroha with each other.

A wonderful way to take part is to participate in Neighbours Day Aotearoa which takes place from 27 March - 5 April. This year’s theme is ‘Small Things Make a Big Difference’ - we couldn’t agree more!

Let us know how you’re celebrating by email or tag us online and include the following hashtag:
