Last year was our driest for more than 10 years.
We’d had only about 60% of our annual average 500mms of rain by early December.
However, we’ve had around 100mms of rain since Christmas Eve. – that’s about 20% of our annual average. Nearly half of it has fallen this year.
This is the Kakanui River that supplies our drinking water.
The water level is dropping but it’s still more than a wee bit dirty.
