Water use records
If you are the holder of a resource consent to take water, you may be required to keep a record of your water take as a condition of your consent.
On this page, we have provided some report templates which you may find useful in managing your records.
Making a return
When you are returning your WUR sheets to us, an MS Excel file (emailed as an attachment) is easiest for our staff to use. However, MS Word format and pdf are also acceptable.
Choose the appropriate form to download and save to your computer.
Complete the form and send it as an attachment by email to email@example.com with the subject as WUR CON your consent number e.g WUR CON 2010123401 (see example below).
Water Use Record (WUR) sheets
Below are the WUR sheets to download.
Please refer to your Resource Consent document to check when your records are due and for which covering period.
Records due on 31 July should cover all water taken from 1 July – 30 June, so you can download only one spreadsheet.
Records due on 1 May should cover all water taken from 1 April – 31 March, so you need to download two spreadsheets to cover the period.
These forms now have columns for Meter reading, Pumped quantity and other options.

New Government Regulations for Measuring and Reporting Water Takes
The national regulations (from central government) apply to all water take resource consent holders who are allowed to take water at a rate of 5 litres per second or more.
If you have a resource consent that was granted prior to 10 November 2010 the regulations do not apply immediately and there is a transition period depending on your allowed rate of take. Further information can be found on the Ministry for the Environment's website at the link below.
