  • NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that pursuant to the provisions of Section 22.2 of the Forest and Rural Fires Act 1977 the following fire seasons are in force from midnight WEDNESDAY 26 MARCH 2014 until further notice.





A RESTRICTED FIRE SEASON in the area of the South Canterbury Rural Fire District west of a line from the Rangitata River up Boundary Stream to Coal Hill following the District Council boundary to Mt Musgrove along with top of the Two Thumbs, Rollesby, Dalgety Ranges, Hunter Hills to Mt Blyth, Campbell Hills to Station Peak to the Waitaki River.

Environment Canterbury have imposed irrigation restrictions on consent holders in the Opihi Catchment.

As Fairlie Water Scheme is a consent holder in that catchment we also have to impose irrigation restrictions on the Fairlie Water supply.

There is now a limit of two hours for any hosing/irrigation per day per property.  This will be reviewed weekly until conditions improve.
