WECA have put in a submission to Horizons Regional Council Long Term Plan 2018-2028.
The key requests are below
- HRC to challenge land use businesses in the Horowhenua district to develop and maintain high expectations around environmental sustainability.
- HRC to set agreed input, effluent and runoff targets for an initial 3 year period, and subsequently,
- HRC to effectively monitor land use businesses for compliance against these water quality targets, and report publicly on how businesses are meeting agreed input and effluent targets.
- HRC to support businesses with improved change practices by encouraging Rural Professionals to support businesses with fit for purpose production practices.
We just hope that this will get some real action on our local freshwater issues.
Thanks for your interest and support
