City’s aquifers hit record lows
Christchurch’s local authorities are clueless as to how much water will be needed as the city grows, according to a three year investigation.
“It comes at a time when the city’s aquifers have hit record lows, and the councils are looking at ways to cut the amount of water being used.”
Christchurch residents use an average of 357 litres of water per person per day, or a total of 48 million cubic metres each year, which costs the city council about 45 cents per household per day. [Hint! Hint!!] http://www.starcanterbury.co.nz/
