SELWYN TIMES Tuesday January 10 2017 25 Classifieds Contact us today Phone our local team 03 379 1100 Public Notice Selwyn District Fire restrictions in place A restricted fire season is in place across the rural plains areas of Selwyn. In residential areas under Environment Canterbury rules outdoor cooking is allowed so long as smoke from your barbecue, pizza oven or other method has no offensive or objectionable effect beyond your boundary. In the high country and hill areas of Selwyn, a restricted fire season is permanently in place. In other rural areas in Selwyn in a restricted fire season the following rules apply: · Gas barbeques are allowed if a water source is nearby · Fires in drums must be covered with a wire mesh top sized no greater than 20mm or have a lid and flue with a spark arrester fitted. Only material that has had a minimum of at least a six week drying period may be burnt under Environment Canterbury’s Air rules. The only type of materials that may be burnt under these rules are dried vegetation, paper, cardboard and untreated wood · Crop residue burns are allowed but only during daylight hours and must be attended at all times. Fires may not be lit when strong winds are blowing or forecast, fire fighting equipment and an adequate water source must be nearby and a 10 metre firebreak must be cleared around the edge of the area to be burnt · Fire may be lit if a permit has been issued by Selwyn District Council and these conditions are followed. Please visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/fire for fire safety guidelines. What’s not allowed: · Any type of fire not listed as permitted above · Fires cannot be lit on Council reserves Don’t let stored hay start a fire Excess moisture trapped inside hay bales can cause hay to heat, which can start a fire. Heating often occurs when vegetation is baled when it is too green, especially when bales are tightly stacked together, preventing air from circulating. Hay should be regularly checked for heating for up to four months after stacking. Signs of heating include: hot bales, steam rising from the stack or moisture build up on rafters or roof or roof corrosion, unusual odours from the hay and sometimes slumping of bales. One way to test to see if heating has occurred if to push a crow bar well inside the hay stack and leave it for two hours, then extract it. If you can safely handle the crow bar then recheck the temperature daily. If you can only handle the crow bar for a short time then you should remove machinery from the shed and recheck the temperature twice a day. If the bar is too hot to touch for more than a few seconds then move hay to improve the air flow and recheck the temperature every 2-4 hours. If the crow bar is too hot to handle it could start a fire. You should contact your local fire brigade immediately and avoid walking on the haystack as this could cause the stack to collapse and ignite. www.selwyn.govt.nz water sense Public Notice Help us keep water flowing this summer We encourage properties connected to Council water supplies to continue to conserve water and adjust when you use water. If demand for water increases over summer, formal water restrictions may be introduced. Council is closely monitoring water use. We appreciate your assistance in helping us avoid needing to introduce formal water restrictions. For more information see www.selwyn.govt.nz.

Don’t irrigate between 6-9am or 4-9pm daily Check weather conditions before watering We recommend you check weather conditions before watering. Watering on hot days or when a Nor’ West is blowing results in a lot of water evaporating and watering in these conditions is not recommended.
