The Kapiti Coast District Council says the recent rain has reduced the need for bore water to boost the Waikanae, Paraparaumu and Raumati supply.
With Waikanae River running at 2380 litres per second this morning, the ratio of bore water was today reduced to 51% — and should fall to zero soon.
Although the river level will drop now the rain has stopped, Dave Bassett. Water Treatment Manager, says the supply will return to 100% river water within the next 24 hours.
And this will flow through to customers over the next two days.
He says that although the minerals in bore water can leave marks and scales — and make the sound of water coming up to the boil noisier — the KCDC has not received any complaints from customers since it started supplementing with bore water on 25 February.
Water restrictions remain in place meaning sprinklers can only be used between 7pm and 9pm daily.
Mr Bassett says: “We’d like to thank people for their water conservation efforts over the very dry summer.
“We expect to be able to remove restrictions once we’ve had a period of prolonged rain.”
