Water Shortage 2022
On 31 March 2022, a Water Shortage Direction was issued to halt irrigation in the region. It ended on Wednesday, 13 April 2022 at 11:59pm.
It was aimed at protecting the extremely low river and aquifer levels in Southland and maintaining essential human and stock water drinking supplies.
While the Water Shortage Direction was in place, some rain had fallen in the region which meant it could be lifted when it expired on 13 April.
