Zephyrometer moving freely The Evans Bay Zephyrometer sculpture, which was blowing low in very high winds last month, has been repaired and is moving freely again. Wellington City Council’s public arts project officer, Victoria Bennett, said additional weights were added to the counter balance of the Zephyrometer’s needle. As well as this its stoppers had been improved, she said. “The needle’s stoppers had to be repaired because of the extra impact caused by the balance not

being correct. “We also added an extra 300kgs counter-balance – made from zinc coated steel triangle plates. “These adjustments will now stop it bending low over the road in high winds.” Artist Phil Price made the Zephyrometer, which was installed in 2003 as part of the Wellington Meridian Energy Wind Sculpture Walk. This is the second time in recent months that the Zephyrometer has had to be repaired. In 2014 the

iconic sculpture had to be replaced, after it was struck by lightning.

Dry weather takes toll on water supply Wellington Water is calling for householders to be water smart as the run of dry weather has led to a dramatic jump in water consumption. Water demand last week for Lower Hutt, Porirua, Upper Hutt and Wellington hit 168 million litres – much higher than the same time the previous week. Residents are reminded to follow ‘odds and evens’ gardening watering restrictions. Even numbered street addresses should water their gardens on even days of the month and odd numbered street addresses on odd days of the month.
