First time ever a Regional Council is being challenged for giving our water away – Aotearoa Water Action – protect our water from international water miners

the challenge…

Last year Environment Canterbury (aka ECan) issued consents to two water bottling companies that allow them to bottle over 24 million litres per day of precious Canterbury aquifer water from bores in Belfast, North Christchurch.  

The consents are based on historical permits for the Silver Fern Farms works and the Kaputone Wool Scour. Those industries used only a tiny fraction of the consented water ‘take’ but the bottling companies will be using every last drop. 

The aquifer is fully allocated and ECan doesn’t understand the potential effects of the increased extraction on artesian pressures and water quality; on freshwater ecosystems; on neighbouring bores; or on the community water supply, because there have been no assessments.  Despite this they’ve bent over backwards to find a process that will enable the bottling to go ahead without public consultation.  We’ll be challenging the legality of that process.

At the time of writing this nearly 90,000 people had signed Genevieve Robinson’s petition calling for the  consent to be revoked. 

However, construction is going ahead and a new bore has been drilled.

We don’t want NZ to stop at protest when we can use the law to protect our water.  We have an opinion from a top Queen’s Counsel that we have a strong case and we’re ready to bring legal proceedings to overturn the Belfast bottling consents.  But we need your help…
