The proposal is for Porirua City Council to become a shareholder in Capacity, and contract the company to manage its water supply, waste water and stormwater. Capacity would then become a council- controlled organisation for Porirua City Council, as it currently is for Wellington City Council, Hutt City Council and shortly, Upper Hutt City Council. Currently Porirua is the only city in the Wellington region that manages its own water services and receives its bulk water directly from the Great Wellington Regional Council,'' Mayor Nick Leggett says. Although we know the current Porirua operation is running well, we've been told some small oper- ational cost savings could be made over time.'' Local government reform discus- sions have led the council to consider whether water can be delivered more effectively, Mr Leggett says. While we have heavily invested in our stormwater, sewage and water asset replacement, we are still run- ning a high risk on two of those networks.'' Porirua City Council is currently negotiating potential costs of joining Capacity. Submissions will be accepted until 5pm on July 1. To submit, write to PO Box 50218, Porirua 5240, email submissions @pcc.govt.nz, or search pcc.govt.nz for Capacity''. Delay forces water ban An oversight by Wellington City Council hastened severe water restrictions over the entire region. Wellington City Council spokes- man Richard MacLean said the council had not delegated the auth- ority to impose water restrictions to its chief executive, meaning an extraordinary council meeting had to be called on March 7. Sprinkler use restrictions were delayed by 10 days, meaning a total outdoor water use ban had to be imposed at the end of that period. As soon as the extraordinary meeting was held it [the sprinkler ban] was there,'' he said. The Greater Wellington Regional Council had sought to impose a con- sistent, region-wide ban. This summer's drought was unpre- cedented and unforeseen, Mr MacLean said. However, he acknowledged that the possibility of a shortage had been flagged when the regional council obtained temporary consent to take more water from the Hutt River while storage lakes were enlarged and strengthened.
