Alexandra, Clyde and Omakau residents will get a greater
allocation of water this year than they first thought, after
the Vincent Community Board took into account opposition to
the planned reduced levels.
Tarras residents spelled out their concerns this week to the
Otago Regional Council about the economic effect of any
minimum flow restrictions imposed on the Lindis River.
Dunedin City Council staff will decide by early next week
whether to lift water restrictions in place for residents at
Waikouaiti, Merton, Karitane and Seacliff.
Level three water restrictions could be introduced for the
first time in parts of Dunedin, if a dry spell continues to
parch the Waikouaiti River.
Dry weather on the east coast is starting to bite, with a low
Waikouaiti River forcing water restrictions north of Dunedin.
