*Hamilton City Council, Waipa District Council and Waikato District Council areas only.
Local rain will be great for our farms, gardens, parks and local waterways. However for our water supply, we need the rain to fall in the Waikato River catchment.
A water catchment is an area where water is collected by the natural landscape and eventually flows to a creek, river, dam or lake.
This forecast shows the area where we need rain to feed our water supply. Our waters staff keep a very close eye on this!
