The Press - - News -

The above photo was in­ap­pro­pri­ately used to ac­com­pany a reader’s let­ter head­lined ‘‘Ef­fect of ir­ri­ga­tion on rivers is clear’’ in Saturday’s is­sue of The Press about the ef­fect of ir­ri­ga­tion in Can­ter­bury. The pic­ture is, in fact, of the Waimakariri River dur­ing a nat­u­ral flood event and its ap­pear­ance as such was un­re­lated to the degra­da­tion and pol­lu­tion men­tioned in the let­ter. The Press re­grets the con­fu­sion caused.
