The small South Island township of Hamner Springs ran out of water yesterday.
The North Canterbury town’s reservoir ran dry because it could not meet demand, over the holiday season.
Local residents were asked to keep their taps turned off overnight to allow the reservoir to refill.
District mayor Winton Dalley said water pressure was now back to normal this morning.
Mr Dalley said soaring temperatures caused the rise in demand and he was urging residents to still be mindful of their water use.
