Auckland Water Crisis - Our Response

11 Sep 2020
Watercare and Auckland Council have indicated that water shortages are likely to intensify into next summer.

Although the region has received regular rainfall in recent weeks, this has not increased reservoir levels enough.  Also, the long range weather forecast is uncertain.

Nurseries and garden centres are vulnerable as they have been targeted by Auckland Council and Watercare for the most intense restrictions.

NZ Plant Producers has developed a strategy to minimise the impact of these restrictions.

While this impacts the Auckland region this year, other regions of the country already face the risk of water restrictions.

Our sector needs to respond to this immediate crisis and then work to adapt to new ways of managing this vital resource
