Canterbury is facing water restrictions as it heads into its third drought season.
And, it won’t be just farmers who will face cutbacks. Residents in towns and cities, such as Christchurch will potentially face restrictions.
Canterbury is in the grips of the worst drought since the 1980s with 86 per cent of water bores at “very low” levels and some hitting record lows.
While August is expected to bring more snowfall and rain to the region it would not be enough.
ECan’s groundwater science manager Carl Hanson said Canterbury would need twice its average rainfall for the next three months to make a difference.
