A total ban on domestic sprinklers remains is still in force in the Waipa district as water demand remains high.
Waipa District Council water services manager Lorraine Kendrick said although there had been a small amount of rain last week and demand had eased compared to previous weeks, there was still a need to have the ban in place.
“The long hot dry spells we have experienced this summer are forecast to continue for some weeks yet, so we have to manage demand wisely,” she said.
