Water usage queried
The council has asked for more information to better quantify the amount of water used by the public. At a meeting yesterday Queenstown Lakes District councillors asked for more detail on the way staff measured the amount of water used, the number of leaks and the methods of detection. Mayor Vanessa van Uden said the topic of leak detection had been talked about for a long time. ‘‘I actually want to see some water consumption reduction,’’ she said. More information will be presented to council by April.
