Christchurch City Council is introducing level one water restrictions in Akaroa on 5 December 2015.
This means Akaroa residents with odd-numbered street addresses can water their gardens on odd-numbered days of the month, and those with even-numbered street addresses can water on

Any change to the level of restriction will be advertised on the water restriction signs in Akaroa, via the newspaper, at www.ccc.govt.nz(external link) or by calling (03) 941 8999 or 0800 800 169 for information.
