Dollops of relieving rain have created enough of a buffer for Tasman district to postpone yesterday's scheduled Dry Weather Taskforce meeting.

The Tasman District Council had issued a ''conserve water'' notice prior to Christmas.

Environment and planning manager Dennis Bush-King said today the Wairoa River was running at a  healthy 12 cubic metres a second, and most of the  district's groundwater levels were rising.

''We will be monitoring the situation over summer but at  this stage we have a good buffer.''
