HEALTHY RIVERS

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

Farm­ers are dis­ap­pointed their re­quest for an ex­ten­sion on the Healthy Rivers Plan has been kicked to touch. But the Waikato River Author­ity is happy with the pace, even though it says the pro­posed Plan Change 1 doesn’t do enough to clean up fresh wa­ter.

An ur­gent meet­ing of the Healthy Rivers Wai Ora Com­mit­tee re­cently voted unan­i­mously to back a staff rec­om­men­da­tion to stick to the March 8 dead­line for sub­mis­sions. A plea from Farm­ers for Pos­i­tive Change chair­man Rick Burke to a Waikato Re­gional Coun­cil called for a two-month stay.
