TDC Dovedale Scheme Survey In Progress

TDC is currently performing a survey of all water connections on the Dovedale Rural Water Scheme.

The survey aims to collect data on types of water use and total numbers of residents connected to the scheme. Obtaining this data is essential for making decisions on the future development of the scheme.

If you are connected to the Dovedale Water Scheme then PLEASE complete the survey.

All users of the scheme should by now have received an email notification to complete the survey online, and a written survey form as well which can be used to send the answers in by mail.

Council has so far received response from only 42% of users which is not near enough data for planning. So if you are on the scheme - whether with a rental or your own property - and have not yet completed the survey, please do it now.

If you know somebody who is connected to the scheme but has not yet heard of the survey, please let them know they can contact council to get signed up by email - or go directly to the survey website to complete it online.

A Critical View of the Waimea Dam

Water Information Network (WIN), a group who was also present at our recent consultation meeting, has created a website with collected information critical of the proposed dam project.

We forward a link to this website as a means to propagate differing views and opinions, and would like to emphasise that the contents of the site is the responsibility of the respective authors.

Waimea Information Network Inc is an incorporated society, formed with the goal to "provide accurate information regarding the Waimea catchment water".

Thoughts about Road Safety at Prices Corner

Prompted by a recent vehicle accident at Prices Corner (intersection of Neudorf Road and the Moutere Highway) one of our association members has inquired whether the 'Give Way' sign (coming from Neudorf Road) should not perhaps be changed to a 'Stop' sign to make the intersection safer overall.

We have followed this up with TDC Transportation Manager Jamie McPherson, who explained to us the rules governing intersections:
