Important information about Christchurch city and Banks Peninsula.

A total fire ban is in place across Christchurch and Banks Peninsula

The ban prohibits any outdoor fires being lit in both rural and urban areas and came into force from 12 February 2019.

Level 3 water restrictions are now in place across Christchurch

If we reduce demand for water, we can take more wells out of service and do the work needed to bring them up to a secure standard so they no longer need chlorine treatment.
