After one of the driest summers in recent memory, consistent rain over recent days has allowed Masterton District Council (MDC) to end garden watering restrictions for what is hoped is the foreseeable future.
The three Wairarapa Councils are uniting to fight the spread of COVID-19 and urgently asking the community to follow Government advice.
Rain has allowed Masterton’s garden watering restriction to be eased to sprinklers on alternate days.
Ongoing dry weather after weekend rain has forced Masterton District Council to reinstate a total garden watering ban.
Weekend rain in the Tararua Range has lifted the flow of the Waingawa River, enabling Masterton District Council to ease garden water restrictions for the next few days to sprinklers on alternate days – houses with odd numbers on odd days, evens on evens.
Outstanding service to the community by groups and individuals has been recognised in the 2019 Masterton District Council Civic and Youth Awards.
