Theonly private water supply is for theAmuri Golf Club and the two ski fields.Rotherham A&P grounds from main road gateFor the golf club, water is drawn from ashallow bore, fed from the Waiau River.This bore is at little risk from flooding orphysical damage. The activity is not anessential service so outages can bemanaged by closing the facility down (ifrequired) until the service is reestablished.

The Amuri ski field draws water from springs on the mountain. Water is tinkered on a dailybasis to the Mt Lyford ski area The Mt Lyford field has minimal facilites (no overnight),whereas the Amuri field has two dormitory accommodation blocks and a kitchen ablution area.A large proportion of the sporting orrecreational facilities described in thisassessment have private sewage disposal.All of these comprise septic tanks (varyingages) and soak-pits. Because they are usedintermittently, they have performedwithout failure for several decades.Amuri Golf Club roomsThese devices are quite basic and are atminimal risk from flooding or physicaldamage but are at risk from solids build-upand congestion of the soak-pits. These arerisks that can be managed throughmaintenance.The responsibility for maintaining sewage facilities and the private water supply rests with theclub or association committees. Councils responsibility lies with the public supplies and sewagenetworks only. Most groups are aware of these responsibilities and maintain the facilities to anacceptable standard. Not all of these clubs and associations hold consents form sewage disposal.Risk to public HealthGlenmark rugby grounds and club-roomsRisks to public health fromcontact/consumption of public water suppliesis covered in the other sections dealing witheach intake. The risks to the private supply atthe Amuri Golf Club and not known, as thesource has not been analysed and no historyexists on which to make an assessment.The risks with all untreated supplies may beexacerbated where non-residents consume thewater during visits. There is no record ofcomplaints in this respect or any indication thatvisitors to any of these facilities have

succumbed to gastro-enteric disorders, but these statements are made from general commentaryonly.Scargill Domain facilitiesRisks must be considered higher fromnon-treated supplies with a known historyof positive faecal bacteria counts andfrom sources known to be contaminated.The facilities served by the Hurunui #1and to a lesser extent, the Cheviot Mainsupplies, must be considered as posing agreater risk to visitors.Risks associated with the two ski-fieldwater sources must be considered assmall, with no human related dischargesabove the abstraction sites and very fewferal animals present over winter months(periods of highest use). Neither supply has any form of water treatment.The risk to public health from private sewage collection and disposal facilities is considered asbeing very low. The risk would be heightened should the facility fail or overflow and peoplecome into contact with sewage. This has not been known to have occurred at any location todate. Environmental risks may also occur, but are managed through individual consents andapprovals from buildings under the Building Act. Holding of current consents or otherwise, isnot part of this assessment.Planning for Future DemandAll the facilities outlined in this section are private associations. Council is not involved inplanning for growth or improvements. Where facilities exist or improvements/extensionsproposed to water and sewage networks, sporting facilities should be encouraged to connect tothese.
