How to save water

Small changes in water use can make a big difference in maintaining a sustainable water supply to the city now, and into the future. We need to make every drop count.

The climate and weather patterns are changing in Tauranga, and across the globe. Over the past five years we have experienced record dry weather and more recently experienced unprecedented wet weather. These changing climatic conditions can put pressure on our water supply to the city.

In Tauranga our water is drawn from three spring-fed streams. During periods of hot, dry weather the aquifers that supply our streams do not recharge at the same rate that we are taking water. During heavy rain events demand for water eases, however it brings challenges in our ability to treat water due to the extra sediment stirred up. Whatever the weather, good water conservation practices are needed.
