Rain eases Tasman water restrictions

3:28 pm on 12 January 2016

Water restrictions have been lifted on the Waimea Plains and in urban centres in Marlborough.

Tasman District Council spokesman Dennis Bush-King said recent rain had replenished river levels and groundwater levels had improved.

However, Golden Bay remained on watch and restrictions could still be introduced in the area.

Mr Bush-King said it was still wise to use water carefully and conserve as much as possible.
