Wellingtonians are being urged to store emergency water supplies as the capital faces possible severe restrictions.

Wellington Water is preparing for level four restrictions, which would ban all outdoor water use and cut indoor use by up to half.

The region's Emergency Management Office recommends storing enough for at least 20 litres per person, per day, for seven days.

Regional manager Jeremy Holmes spoke to Charlotte Cook.
