Rebound meets goose on flushing

Dairy farmers in Northland have thrown the need to build poo farms that handle peak flows and beyond back at their regional council, telling them to clean up their act.
Northland Regional Council requires dairy farmers to provide for stormwater diversion and sufficient storage to ensure there are no discharges during wet periods," operations director Bill Guest said.

We are of the opinion that rules relating to management of waste or effluent must be consistent across sectors

Too right. This is what happens when the rabid tree huggers that infest councils keep plugging dirty dairy. These things have a habit of coming back to kiss you goodbye when you flush.

A timely reminder for local government bureaucrats to concentrate on core business, such as decent infrastructure for sewage disposal.

What's good for the goose...
