SELWYN TIMES Tuesday July 12 2016 7 News Water meter crackdown THERE HAVE been 45 abatement notices and one infringement notice issued in the last two months to Canterbury water consent holders who hadn’t yet installed a required meter. Environment Canterbury made contact in May and June with the 500 water consent holders who had not provided evidence they had installed a water measuring system. Of these, 63 have since been deemed fully compliant with their consent conditions and the national regulations. ECan regional manager implementation support Nadeine Dommisse said all of the 500 consent holders now either had an agreed action plan in place to install a water measuring device, or were aware they had 10 working days to provide evidence that action was being taken to avoid further enforcement action. “What we have found is that once contacted, many people took action immediately or provided evidence they had a plan in place to install the necessary equipment and systems,” she said. About 5400 (or 90 per cent of the 5900 water consent holders in Canterbury) had already provided evidence they complied with the regulations. INSPECTION TIME: A correctly installed water measuring system undergoing verification by an ECan environment protection officer to ensure an accurate flow-rate measurement. All water consent holders with a take of 10l/s or more are required to measure their water takes and provide ECan with data on their daily water use. •For more information on the government’s regulations, and a full list of approved service providers visit the Environment Canterbury and Irrigation New Zealand websites. BILINGUAL: Amiria and Matakaea Tikao helped supermarket customers celebrate Maori Language Week. ​ Pupils teach Te Reo TWO PUPILS – one from Shirley Intermediate and the other from St Albans School – were the voices behind a supermarket initiative to celebrate Maori Language Week. Amiria Tikao, 12, and her younger sister Matakaea, 9, had their voices professionally recorded in a sound studio to help SuperValue and FreshChoice customers better understand the Maori language. The sisters were recorded pronouncing items such as apples, mushrooms, fish, milk, meat, kiwifruit and cheese, along with many others. Amiria said it was a fun project to be involved with. “It was really cool. It took about 45mins, so not very long . . . we got most of the words first time, which was good,” she said. Local SuperValue and Fresh- Choice supermarkets then put posters up around their stores, with a QR code that customers could scan with their cell phone. The code led to a website where they could hear the two pupils correctly pronounce the word. Amiria said she had not yet tested out the posters, but she would think about going in later. SuperValue and FreshChoice brands manager Liz de Lange said that when the campaign was run last year, the QR codes were used thousands of times.
