Poll: Would you agree to stop watering your garden if it meant chlorine-free drinking water?

Neighbourly from Neighbourly.co.nz

Christchurch residents have been given a stark choice – cut your water use or put up with chlorinated water for longer. The city council has finalised its plans to upgrade 72 of the city's wells. When that work is completed it will mean about two-thirds of the city's water supply will be unchlorinated.

However, the timing of the works will depend on the availability of drilling machines and specialist contractors. It is also constrained by the number of wells that can be taken out of service, especially over the summer months when there is a high demand for water.

Unless people are willing to cut back on their water use, they won't be able to do much work over summer. The council may also have to resume using the below ground well heads we've shut off, which means water from those pump stations will have to be chlorinated.

Do you want year-round lights at the botanic gardens?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi Christchurch,

What did you think of your city's Botanic D'Lights festival? About 136,000 people visited the event over five nights last week. And now your city's gardens are set to be lit up all year round, thanks to a new light installation. However some ratepayers have questioned the $900,000 cost to keep the Armstrong Lawn area adjacent to Rolleston Ave, lit.

So let's hear your thoughts. Are you happy for your rates to go towards the lighting display? Or do you think the money should be best spent elsewhere? Let us know in the replies!
