Invitation to Make Submissions
The decision to consult the community on whether to
cease chlorination of the Rangiora and Oxford Urban
water schemes was approved by the Utilities and Roading
Committee on 21 August 2012.
Both Oxford and Rangiora have recently connected to new
water sources. These water sources are deep secure wells
that are at a low risk of contamination. Testing of the water
from the new sources has shown these to be of a very high
quality. The Oxford Urban water source has been given
secure status by the Canterbury District Health Board and
the Rangiora water source has an interim secure status.
Rangiora is expected to achieve secure status in April 2013
following a further nine months of clear test results.
The following public meetings have been scheduled:
•Tuesday 18 September, Rangiora Council Chambers, 7pm to 9pm
•Thursday 20 September, Oxford Baptist Church Hall,
166 High Street, Oxford, 7pm to 9pm
The Summary of Information will be provided:
• On the Council website (www.waimakariri.govt.nz); and
• In the information leaflet to all affected ratepayers
which will outline the background to the proposal,
including some of the pros and cons of chlorination and
an opportunity to provide a submission. This will be
posted the week commencing Monday 10 September 2012.
All other information will be available to the public when the
submission period opens on Saturday 1 September 2012.
The full proposal is available from Council service centres
and libraries at 215 High Street, Rangiora, and 34 Main
Street, Oxford, within opening hours, or viewed online at the
Submissions must be in writing and include your name,
organisation (if applicable) and contact details. The
