The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
Whilst the Waimakariri District is fortunate in having sufficient quantities of high quality water available for the community drinking water supplies, it is not an unlimited resource.
At present Council spends approximately $4 million a year operating the 16 water supply schemes to provide water to its communities. This amount is expected to increase over the next few years, so saving water becomes more important, as it will directly impact on the cost of supplying water, and therefore your water rates.
We need to reduce water usage during hot sunny days, as this is when water is most scarce and when the water schemes have their highest demand. Each summer we use up to four times as much water a day as a typical winter's day. Much of this goes on our lawns and gardens. Our water is precious - don't waste it. There are a number of ways you can save water around the home.
