SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday May 30 2017 7 News Darfield water judged the best in NZ •From page 1 The judging panel made up of representatives from the WIOG, chemical company IXOM and Altitude Brewing decided Darfield had the best-tasting water based on how it looks, smells and tastes. The improved quality is a large turn-around in the township’s water supply. In 2012, animal effluent in Darfield’s water supply was the cause of a gastroenteritis outbreak affecting more than 110 people. Darfield Bakery owner Daryl Collier agreed the water quality was good since the new bores were installed but it took the district council a long time to take responsibility for the outbreak in 2012. Stanwood Holdings Ltd director Jim Brooker, who was responsible for installing the first water well west of the township on resident Jill Logan’s property said the news is a big boost for the area. “It is a big thing for Darfield, we need this boost,” he said. Darfield Garden Centre and Florist manager Angela Lalor said there are no complaints from the plants over the water quality. Meanwhile, a decision on a REFRESHING: Darfield High School students Emma Coyle and Tristen Jones with a glass of fresh water.

Mr Collier said he has concerns Darfield is the largest townships without a sewage system. During the annual plan’s deliberations last week no decision was made on whether the district council will go ahead with the plan. Mr Broughton said the district council will look to work with the community and scientific data over the next 12 months to make a decision on the system. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the water quality in Darfield? Email your views to georgia. oconnor@starmedia.kiwi Rate increase to manage stormwater • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding RESIDENTS CAN expect a rate increase of $85 per property in areas where the district council manages stormwater. The issue was decided at Annual Plan discussions on Thursday. Nearly 14,000 properties will be affected by the decision. They include 5272 properties in Rolleston, Lincoln (2035), Prebbleton (1462) and Darfield (1112). Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall said the increase provides a better way of managing stormwater across the community. “There will be winners and losers, there will be some who will see their rates go up and some will see it go down. It will give us a larger reserve in the future as issues come along,” Cr Lyall said. A health hub in Rolleston is also on the cards along with an extension for the Selwyn Aquatic Centre also approved. Mr Broughton said it was decided the libraries will not be open on Sundays after the submissions were received were not supportive of the idea. But the library hours will be open for longer on weekdays.
