Local Launch for Pollution
Environment Canterbury's Pollution Prevention
Team joined Selwyn Mayor Kelvin Coe to launch its
programme at the Izone Business Hub recently.
The team will work with businesses to raise awareness
of environmental issues at Rolleston's new business
hub, and surrounding industrial area.
Industrial spills and accidents have the potential
to cause significant environmental damage if they
enter the stormwater system, as drains and gutters
lead directly to local streams and rivers. "The team's
focus is on preventing industrial spills by encouraging
businesses to review their processes, develop best
practices, and raise staff awareness to minimise the
risk of discharges into the environment.
"Our team offers free independent advice based on
experience gained from visiting more than 1,600 businesses in the last five years," said Paul Gofton,
Team Leader at Environment Canterbury for implementation and pollution prevention.
Local businesses can help prevent pollution by:
identifying stormwater drains and ensuring only clean rainwater enters the stormwater system
having spill kits and spill procedures in place in case of an incident
storing and handling hazardous substances -- ensuring secondary containment is in place and
all drains, especially stormwater drains, are protected during loading and unloading.
Izone businesses can expect to be contacted by Environment Canterbury's Pollution Prevention Team
in the next few months. For more information about the programme visit www.ecan.govt.nz/ppg.
The realignment of Telegraph Road with
Bray Street in Darfield has started. Motorists
should take extreme care when proceeding
through this intersection while this work is
being completed. When the realignment has
finished the priority at the intersection will
change giving right of way to traffic on Bray
Street/Telegraph Road. Cardale Street will
be controlled by a compulsory stop sign.
A concept plan can be viewed on the
Council's website www.selwyn.govt.nz/
If you have questions about this project
please contact Stef McNeil on 03 347 2800
or phone 03 318 8338.

The Council is developing a new Local
Alcohol Policy that will guide the hours,
location and conditions for places that sell
alcohol. The aim is to minimise alcohol-

help inform this policy. We need to know

can buy and drink alcohol. The survey will
take about 10 minutes to complete and

two $50 itunes vouchers. To complete the
survey visit Selwyn.govt.nz/haveyoursay
