Water restrictions

In light of the rainfall received over the last week, Nelson City Council is now able to ease water restrictions.

In urban Nelson, Stage One water restrictions are now in effect. Stage One restrictions allow odd numbered houses to use sprinklers on odd days only and vice versa for even numbered houses. The restrictions apply to the use of sprinklers on gardens, lawns and orchards, but do not apply to areas used extensively by the public, such as bowling greens, golf course greens, cricket pitches and public gardens. Handheld watering with a hose is permitted. Learn more.
