Our water Schemes

We manage over 30 water supplies across the District that spans from Arthur's Pass to Taumutu in the southern region.

Selwyn District Water Schemes

Managing our water demand

  • High growth in the eastern urban townships including Rolleston, Lincoln, West Melton and Prebbleton, is driving the need for more public drinking water from these townships sources - both at existing and new sites.
  • For some townships residents are able to self-monitor scheme capacity and adjust water usage to suit e.g. don’t irrigate lawns while the scheme is under pressure.
  • To understand how much water is available in our region and how we manage it, you can visit the Regional Council's website: LAWA (Land, Air, Water Aotearoa) website. To understand how we are doing compared to other districts you can visit Water NZ website.
