The water dial below shows Christchurch's total water use yesterday, including commercial users but not usage from private wells. The personal use information below the dial is residential use only.
We use this information to understand how the water supply is being used.Loading content...
This zone represents an average day's water use. At this level, we are usually able to cope well with demand.
If our water use gets into the yellow zone, we may start to experience supply issues like reduced pressure.
If our water use stays in the red zone for too long, we may need to implement restrictions, to help ensure fair and sustainable water supply across the city.
Water use by zone
This summer, we're asking you to think carefully about how and when you use water, particularly outside. This is so our water supply doesn't come under too much pressure.
