Teviot Valley rural water measuring information session

Teviot Valley rural water measuring information session

The Otago Regional Council (ORC) is holding an open ‘call in’ session for Teviot Valley irrigators and others interested in rural water management at the Roxburgh Service Centre from 11am to 2pm on Wednesday 5 December.

ORC senior land resources officer Bruce Monaghan said with water metering regulations now in force, water users in the area should be aware of their responsibilities.

A three-tiered time frame for water meter installation has begun its implementation:

• takes of more than 20 litres per second (l/s) from 10 November 2012
• takes of 10 l/s up to 20 l/s must be in place by 10 November 2014
• takes of 5 l/s up to 10 l/s must be in place by 10 November 2016

Mr Monaghan said those attending the session should bring along their consent or water take information to ensure that questions can be accurately answered.

“It’s a good chance, in an informal atmosphere, for local irrigators to discuss their situation and get a clear answer on any water management issues,” Mr. Monaghan said.
