Horizons Council – Double Standards?


COUNTRY99TV EXCLUSIVE

Horizons Council – Double Standards?


The environmental impact of New Zealand’s dairy industry has been a key focus for media recently. But little attention has been paid to wastewater treatment plants which process urban sewage and discharge it to both land and waterways.

Horizons Council, in charge of the Manawatu-Wanganui region, has been trying to introduce its One Plan, which would impose nutrient caps on farmers. A Government-commissioned report has suggested it would drop some farmer’s profits in the region by up to 43%.

But is Horizons as tough on the seven district councils in the region, which are responsible for wastewater treatment plants?

Country99TV investigates Horizons Council to discover shocking details on the compliance records of its district councils, and the heavy-handed treatment of local farmers.

Part one of this exclusive story will feature in The Daily Report tonight at 7.00pm, only on Country99TV.
Part two will air in The Daily Report at 7.00pm, Friday March 15
