Rainfall 2019

According to this GWRC webpage for the 12 months 01/01/2019 to 31/12/2019 it was 1121 mm, down from 1501 mm in 2018.

However, previous years have been still lower: for example, it was 834 mm in 2001.   The practical significance is that there is an increased likelihood of the council using more bore water for reticulated tap supplies in the next three months than there has been in the last four years.
