The Waitaki District Council Water Bylaw requires every resident to be responsible for the leaks within one's property and for those outside one's property to contact the Council on 433 0300.
Our contractors need to have access to the point of supply on your property.
Information on pipes and fittings on your property get damaged by frost.
Make sure you’re not at risk of contaminating the water supply by taking steps to prevent backflow.
If you have sold your property it’s a good idea to call Council so we can make sure the rates are charged to the right person.
If you receive a restricted supply, you need to have enough tank storage to hold at least three times the daily restricted flow.
You must protect Council-owned water supply pipes and fittings on your property from accidental damage and tampering.
When it comes to conserving water, every drop counts - a dripping tap can waste up to 90 litres of water a day.
If you move the point of supply on your property, you need to make an application to us for a new connection.
