Have your say
ECan are inviting feedback on the draft ZIPA from 21 September 2018, and closing on 12 October 2018.
The ZIPA recommendations can be found on ECan’s website or downloaded from the B+LNZ website.
The ZIPA’s recommendations reflect issues that ECan may create new rules and policies around. These include recommendations on:
- Nitrogen – allocation, reductions, and zones.
- Other contaminant losses to water – phosphorus, sediment, E.coli.
- Surface water – use, allocation and minimum flows.
- Ground water – use and allocation.
- Cultural values.
The ZIPA recommendations have the potential to affect all farmers in the region.
