1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       For the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee to consider the establishment of a Christchurch Biodiversity Fund.

1.2       For the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee to recommend that the Council endorse the establishment of a Christchurch Biodiversity Fund with a budget of $200,000 allocated on an annual basis conditional upon the Council approving $200,000 of grant funding in the 2017/2018 draft Annual Plan.

Origin of Report

1.3       At the 21 June 2016 Council meeting the Council noted (z, ii):

That staff will this year consider options for a Christchurch Biodiversity Partnership to be funded within existing budgets, depending on the model chosen and the work programme to include consideration of the possibility of establishing a biodiversity partnership fund to include items such as fencing and pest control, through the next Annual Plan.

2.   Significance

2.1       The decisions in this report are of medium significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by consideration of the amount the fund and the impact across the community.

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflect the assessment.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee recommend that the Council:

1.         Receive the information in this report.

2.         Approve the establishment of a Christchurch Biodiversity Fund to provide financial assistance to landowners to maintain and enhance indigenous biodiversity, subject to:

a.         The Council approving grant funding of $200, 000 per annum to the proposed Christchurch Biodiversity Fund, which will be considered for allocation in the 2017/18 draft Annual Plan.

3.         Notes that future grant funding be considered for inclusion in the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan.

4.         Delegate authority to the General Manager Strategy and Transformation to approve the allocation of $80,000 to support landowners in the Sites of Ecological Significance (SES) programme for 2016/17 financial year.

5.         Delegate authority to the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee to consider and approve applications to the Christchurch Biodiversity Fund.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2015 - 2025):

4.1.1   Activity: Strategic Planning and  Policy

·     Level of Service: 17.0.33 The Biodiversity Strategy and Implementation Programme is reviewed, with associated annual programmes developed and implemented  

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Establish the Christchurch Biodiversity Fund (preferred option).

·     Option 2 – Provide funds to existing nature conservation organisations.

·     Option 3 – Provide a one-off grant on a case by case basis to landowners for the Sites of Ecological Significance (SES) Programme.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Contributes to biodiversity conservation, restoration and enhancement across private land.

·     Facilitates the Council’s Significant Ecological Sites (SES) programme in developing long-term landowner relationships, by providing financial assistance towards management of SES and significant covenanted areas.

·     Directly supports the Christchurch District Plan objective to ensure that there is no net loss of biodiversity.

·    Complements other biodiversity funding available to landowners from Environment Canterbury and other agencies.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·    Is an additional cost to the Council. 

 

5.   Context/Background

 

The Christchurch District Plan

5.1       The Council undertook ecological surveys across the Christchurch Plains and Banks Peninsula (during 2014 to 2015) in preparation for the review of our District Plans.  The surveys identified Sites of Ecological Significance (SES) that were scheduled for protection in the proposed Christchurch Replacement District Plan. Further surveys to identify areas as having potentially significant indigenous vegetation and habitat types are planned.

5.2       The proposed Plan hearings, deliberations, decisions, appeals and mediations on sub-chapter ‘Indigenous Biodiversity and Ecosystems’ (within Chapter 9 Natural and Cultural Heritage) took place throughout 2016 and 2017, and were brought to a conclusion in April 2017. This process resulted in a policy to provide incentives and assistance to maintain and enhance indigenous biodiversity including a landowner support package with incentives, advice and guidance for managing Sites of Ecological Significance and for properties identified as potentially having scheduled indigenous vegetation and habitat types (Policy 9.1.2.15).

5.3       In response to the new Christchurch District Plan provisions Council staff have been working with Federated Farmers, Environment Canterbury, the Banks Peninsula Zone Committee and Beef and Lamb New Zealand on a pilot programme for properties with existing and potential Sites of Ecological Significance. The pilot will prepare individual property and/or catchment based Farm Biodiversity Plans (as specified in Policy 9.1.2.13 in the Christchurch District Plan). These Plans integrate biodiversity management into Farm Environment Plans and set out priorities for activities such as fencing, planting, pest and weed control, and farm management practices such as grazing and nutrient management. The pilot programme will begin in Port Levy and Pigeon Bay and there is $80,000 available within existing budgets for 2016/17 to fund grants to landowners.

5.4       Providing a land owner support package for scheduled Sites of Ecological Significance sites is equivalent to the support offered by Council to owners of heritage buildings that are similarly protected through the Christchurch District Plan. The Heritage Incentive Grant provides fund of approximately $760,000 per annum which is allocated to the owners of scheduled heritage buildings. The Heritage Team also provides advice to building owners on the conservation and maintenance of heritage fabric.

The Biodiversity Strategy 2008-2035

5.5       The Council’s Biodiversity Strategy supports the provision of technical advice to landowners and contestable grants for biodiversity conservation work on private land, states that Council will support the work of Conservation Trusts in the covenanting of private land for biodiversity protection, and states that the Council will actively seek partnerships with institutional, community and businesses to promote, protect and enhance biodiversity.

5.6       The Council has implemented the Biodiversity Strategy goals in part by providing financial support, in 2012, through a 10 year Memoranda of Understanding with the Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust ($50,000 per annum), Port Hills Park Trust Board ($15,000), Summit Road Society ($20,000), Orton-Bradley Park Board ($50,000), Ōtamahua Quail Island Ecological Restoration Trust ($8,000), and the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust ($11,000).

5.7       A stocktake of not-for-profit organisations with an environment or biodiversity mission has identified 50 groups in the greater Christchurch area. These groups are volunteer based and rely on donations and grants to fund their projects. Some of the larger groups have successfully obtained funding from government agencies.  Smaller groups and individual landowners have limited options for funding biodiversity initiatives from public or private sources.

Environment Canterbury funding for biodiversity

5.8       Environment Canterbury has over a million dollars available annually for the protection and restoration of biodiversity across the region. One of the three ‘flagship’ projects, the Te Waihora/Lake Ellesmere enhancement project, is partly within the Christchurch District. The Banks Peninsula and Christchurch West Melton Water Zone Committees administer the Immediate Steps funding for landowners, with $100,000 allocated by each committee each year. The funding is available to support on the ground actions which improve the ecosystem health of springs, wetlands and streams – such as fencing, weed and pest control.

Proposed Biodiversity Partnership and funding support

5.9       During the Council 21 June 2016 meeting, staff were requested to consider options for a Christchurch Biodiversity Partnership to be funded within existing budgets, and depending on the model chosen, to consider a fund for work such as fencing and pest control, through the 2017/18 Annual Plan. Staff have worked with stakeholders to develop the terms of reference for the Biodiversity Partnership and the associated funding.

5.10    The Christchurch Biodiversity Fund would enable private landowners with SES (or potential SES to be scheduled through a future plan change) or with significant sites protected by a covenant to apply for practical assistance for fencing and pest control on a cost sharing basis. The availability of assistance would encourage and support landowners to participate in the ongoing programme and identify and protect SES across the Christchurch Plains and Banks Peninsula. 

5.11    A contestable Christchurch Biodiversity Fund would complement existing partnerships, the work of the park rangers on public land and the Water Zone Committees’ Immediate Steps funding for enhancement of riparian areas. The Fund would enable economies of scale for pest control, result in a net increase in biodiversity values, and strengthen landowner relationships with neighbours and the Council. 

6.   Option 1 – Christchurch Biodiversity Fund, Contestable grant (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       To establish a Biodiversity Fund of $200,000 per annum to facilitate and encourage protection of Sites of Ecological Significance on private land within the Christchurch City Council jurisdiction. This will be conditional upon the Council approving a budget of $200,000 for the proposed Biodiversity Fund in the 2017/2018 draft Annual Plan. The draft description of the fund, eligibility standards and criteria for evaluation of applications is attached (Attachment A: Christchurch Biodiversity Fund).

6.2       Deliver on the pilot project and allocate $80,000, available within existing budgets, to the Christchurch Biodiversity Fund for the 2016/17 financial year.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3       This option involves a minor decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value.  In the long term, the decision will improve Ngāi Tahu cultural values by improving the quality of ecosystems associated with land, freshwater and the coast.

Community Views and Preferences

6.4       Landowners with covenanted areas or SES view the Christchurch Biodiversity Fund as assisting them with offsetting costs for managing these areas. It is likely that it will be welcomed by the community, as improving biodiversity is perceived as a public good.

Financial Implications

6.5       None for 2016/17.

6.6       An annual fund of $200,000, subject to the Council’s approval in the 2017/2018 draft Annual Plan.

6.7       Annual administration costs to be absorbed within existing budgets.

Legal Implications

6.8       None

Risks and Mitigations

6.9       Risk: Public funds could be viewed as being used for private gain.

6.10    Mitigated by:

·   Funding is limited to areas meeting criteria for eligibility and prioritised for ecological gains.

·   Funding is specifically used for fencing, planting and pest control to protect biodiversity (see Attachment 1).

·   The Infrastructure Transport and Environment Committee oversees allocation of the Biodiversity Fund.

·   Costs are reimbursed on receipt and work having been checked and signed off by a Council officer.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.11    The advantages of this option include:

·   Contributes to biodiversity conservation, restoration and enhancement across private land.

·   Directly facilitates the Council’s SES programme in developing long-term landowner relationships, by providing financial assistance towards management of SES’s and covenanted areas.

·   Directly supports the Christchurch District Plan objective to ensure that there is no net loss of biodiversity.

·   Complements other biodiversity funding available to landowners from Environment Canterbury and other agencies.

6.12    The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Additional cost to the Council.


 

7.   Option 2 – Fund existing Partnerships

Option Description

7.1       The Council allocates $200,000 to the Banks Peninsula Trust and Queen Elizabeth II Trust to distribute in accordance with the criteria in the Christchurch Biodiversity Fund. This will be conditional upon the Council allocating a grant fund of $200,000 in the 2017/2018 draft Annual Plan.

Significance

7.2       The level of significance of this option is medium, see section 2 of this report.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.3       This option involves a minor decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value.  In the long term, the decision will improve Ngāi Tahu cultural values by improving the quality of land, freshwater and the coast.

Community Views and Preferences

7.4       The Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust (BPCT) and QEII National Trust (QEII) have well established and good relationships with landowners on Banks Peninsula.  Currently BPCT receives $50,000 per annum from the Council and QEII receives no financial support.  Both Trusts would welcome additional funding.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.5       This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies.

Financial Implications

7.6       An annual fund of $200,000, which will be considered in the 2017/2018 draft Annual Plan.

7.7       Some additional funding for administration

Legal Implications

7.8       None

Risks and Mitigations

7.9       Risk: Fund not administered effectively.

7.10    This will mitigated by:

·   As per the existing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with BPCT, a three year project plan will be agreed between the Council and BPCT at the commencement of the first year of funding and every three years thereafter.  The Project Plan will demonstrate how outcomes contribute to the objective of improving biodiversity in SES’s and covenants on private land. 

·   An MOU will be agreed as above with QEII.

Implementation

7.11       Implementation dependencies – Review MOU or establish a contract with Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust, establish an MOU or a contract with QEII Trust.

7.12       An annual report will be provided by 31st October each year on the use of the funding.

7.13       The Council, BPCT and QEII will hold a meeting by 30th November each year to discuss the reports.  Other meetings will be held as considered necessary.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.14    The advantages of this option include:

·   Contributes to biodiversity conservation, restoration and enhancement across private land.

·   Directly supports the Christchurch District Plan objective to ensure that there is no net loss of biodiversity.

·   Builds on existing management support for covenants provided to private land owners by QEII and BPCT.

·   Independent providers with established relationships with landowners.

7.15    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Staff capacity of partners is already limited so they may be unable to administer the fund and meet reporting requirements without recruiting additional staff.

·   Perceived inequities as other Trusts and Societies do not receive funding.

·   Not directly associated with Council and its ongoing SES programme

·   Councillors are not involved in considering and approving applications.


 

8.   Option 3 – Status quo

Option Description

8.1       The Council provides a one-off grant of $80,000 to landowners on a case by case basis to implement the Significant Ecological Sites (SES) programme in the 2015/16 financial year. 

Significance

8.2       The level of significance of this option is medium, see section 2 of this report.

Impact on Mana Whenua

8.3       This option involves no decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value.  In the long term, the decision will not change Ngāi Tahu cultural values relating to the quality of land, freshwater and the coast.

Community Views and Preferences

8.4       Landowners with covenanted areas or SES would prefer a Christchurch Biodiversity Fund to assist them in offsetting costs for managing these areas.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

8.5       This option is not consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies.

Financial Implications

8.6       None.

Legal Implications

8.7       None

Risks and Mitigations

8.8       Risk: landowners do not participate in SES programme and/or long term SES decline.

8.9       Mitigation: focus on developing relationships and advocating other sources of funding

Implementation

8.10       Implementation dependencies – none.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

8.11    The advantages of this option include:

·   No additional costs to the Council.

8.12    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   District Plan policies and Christchurch Biodiversity Strategy actions are not implemented.

·   Failure to effectively roll out the programme to identify and protect SES

·   Perceived unfairness as fencing, planting and managing pests to protect biodiversity on private land is perceived as a public good.

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee:

1.         Take note of the information provided in this report, including the revised timeframes for the completion of the Northwest Christchurch well drilling programme.

 

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       The following measures were implemented:

4.1.1   Fast-tracking of the Northwest DWSNZ Upgrade project and implementation of additional risk management processes excluding temporary chlorination.
Update:

·     Staff redistributed contractor and financial resources in order to fast track the programme.

·     As of 15 May 2017, 6 out of 12 shallow wells have been decommissioned and 16 out of 27 deep wells are fully operational.

·     The additional cost of fast tracking was approximately $250,000.

·     All remaining non-secure shallow wells in the Northwest zone are turned off but will need to remain on standby for health & safety reasons until all the new deep wells are fully commissioned and operational.

·     Details can be found in section 6.1.

4.1.2   Engagement and communication with the community and vulnerable water consumers (e.g. dialysis patients) in the affected zones about the measures that can be taken to reduce the public health risks in areas supplied from shallow groundwater aquifers.
Update:

·     Engagement and communication with the community and vulnerable water consumers took place using various media channels such as the Council website, Newsline articles and the distribution of a flyer to affected residents.

·     Details can be found in section 6.2.

4.1.3   Correspondence dated 30 September 2016 with the Medical Officer of Health which provided answers to several questions raised including ‘why Christchurch City Council believe continued used of these non-secure sources does not present an untenable risk to the residents of Northwest Christchurch’.
Update:

·     Staff replied to the Medical Officer of Health’s letter on 30 September 2016 providing details on how the potential water supply risks posed by the remaining shallow wells in the Northwest Christchurch water supply are currently managed.

·     Council received a response from the Medical Officer of Health on 20 October 2016.

·     Details can be found in section 6.5.

4.2       Upon completion of the Northwest DWSNZ Upgrade project Council will go through the process of establishing the DWSNZ ‘secure groundwater’ status for the new wells and re-confirming the DWSNZ ‘secure groundwater’ status for the existing wells. Discussions have commenced with the Drinking Water Assessor about the requirements that need to be met. The process is expected to take 12-18 months.

4.3       Drinking water supply risk grading will be carried out when the DWSNZ ‘secure groundwater’ status has been achieved.

 

5.   Context/Background

History

5.1       The Northwest DWSNZ upgrade which involves the drilling of new deep wells to achieve secure groundwater status and compliance with DWSNZ for the Northwest Christchurch Community (listed as NORO12 in the Ministry of Health register of community drinking water supplies), commenced in the 2012/13 financial year and was originally to be completed by 30 June 2018.

5.2       The 2016 water contamination incident in Havelock North raised concerns nationwide about public health risks and whether water suppliers in fact take all practicable steps to comply with the DWSNZ as required by section 69V of the Health Act 1956.

5.3       Council received a letter from Dr Alistair Humphrey, Medical Officer of Health (Canterbury) dated 25 August 2016 in which Council was asked to provide details of the management of the remaining shallow, unconfined aquifer 1 wells in the Northwest zone including ‘why Christchurch City Council believe continued use of these non-secure sources does not present an untenable risk to the residents of Northwest Christchurch’.

5.4       After preparing a report for the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee on ‘Council Drinking Water and E. coli Testing and Risk Mitigation Processes’ which provided information on the city’s drinking water compliance monitoring programme, staff carried out an options study and established several options outlined in the report ‘Compliance with Drinking Water Standards – Northwest Christchurch’ which was presented to Council on 22 September 2016.

5.5       Council resolved to proceed with the fast tracking of the Northwest upgrade programme to decommission as many shallow wells as practically and operationally feasible by the end of March 2017.

5.6       This report provides an update on the fast tracking and additional risk mitigation processes implemented.

6.   Progress Made

6.1       Fast-tracking of the Northwest DWSNZ Upgrade project commenced in September 2016 by means of redistributing contractor and financial resources. The key sites that benefitted from the fast tracking were Burnside and Farrington stations. Fast tracking also included the repairs to the suction tank at Grampian station.

·   As of 15 May 2017 6 out of 12 shallow wells have been decommissioned and 16 out of 27 deep wells are fully operational. Appendix D provides more information for each station.

·   The additional cost of fast tracking was approximately $250,000.

·   All remaining non-secure shallow wells in the Northwest zone are turned off but will need to remain on standby for health & safety reasons until all the new deep wells are fully commissioned and operational. Section 7 outlines the work yet to be completed before this can occur.

6.2       Engagement and communication with the community and vulnerable water consumers took place using various media channels.

·   Staff added relevant information to the public Council website and several Newsline articles were written with updates on the programme. A new Newsline article is due to be released in mid-May. Links to the relevant information can be found in Appendix F.

·   A flyer with information about the Northwest water supply zone and Council’s well drilling project was distributed to 33,471 households in mid-November 2016. The flyer is attached to this report as Appendix E.

·   Three Waters and Waste Technical Services staff dealt with customer concerns and queries as required but there was no noticeable increase in customer enquiries as a result of the increased media coverage.

6.3       Water quality sampling was increased to daily sampling at key sites and will continue until the shallow wells have been decommissioned.

6.4       Wellhead security assessments were carried out at the key sites to ensure that the wellheads of the existing shallow wells meet Drinking Water Standards for NZ requirements.

6.5       Council staff prepared a detailed response to the Medical Officer of Health on how the potential water supply risks posed by the remaining shallow wells in the Northwest Christchurch water supply are currently managed. The letter is attached as Appendix B.

·   Council received the Medical Officer of Health’s response on 20 October 2016 which acknowledged the information provided. The letter is attached as Appendix C.

·   The letter stated that the Canterbury District Health Board was ‘assured by the collaboration that is being undertaken with Environment Canterbury across several areas of work’, that ‘the fast tracking of the capital works…is a positive outcome’

·   The letter also acknowledged that CCC and CDHB staff are working together ‘to confirm the steps that will be required to establish the security criteria for the new wells’.

7.   Work Required to Complete the Northwest Christchurch DWSNZ Upgrade

7.1       There are several sites which could not be fast tracked as they are either part of a wider water supply growth capital works project or still require physical well drilling and well development works.

7.2       Several wells at Crosbie, Grampian and Avonhead stations are still being drilled and/or developed which is a process that takes several months to complete and cannot be fast tracked. Well drilling contractors will concentrate on those sites when the key sites Burnside and Farrington are complete. Work is scheduled to be completed by June 2018.

7.3       The deep wells at Jeffreys station cannot be connected and operated until the suction tank has been replaced. The work is scheduled to be completed by June 2018.

7.4       The shallow well at Harewood station will be replaced by the new Gardiners station which is currently under construction and scheduled to be completed by June 2018.

7.5       The shallow wells at Wrights station will be replaced by a new station yet to be built in the area as the existing site on Addington Raceway land (not owned by Council) is no longer suitable due to space constraints. An options report has been prepared and the 2 preferred options (100 Wrights Rd and ex SCIRT site on Annex Rd) are being pursued. If land purchase proceeds as planned by the end of 2017 then the new station is scheduled to be completed by December 2019.

7.6       If the above projects continue on their critical paths then the Northwest DWSNZ Upgrade project will be completed by December 2019.

7.7       The community, Public Health Agencies and the Medical Officer of Health are being kept updated by regular meetings and progress reports.

7.8       Council staff have also commenced discussions with the Community & Public Health Drinking Water Assessor to confirm the steps required to establish the DWSNZ groundwater security criteria for the new wells.

7.9       It should be noted that confirming groundwater security is a separate process which needs to be completed before water supply risk grading can be undertaken. The process involves a variety of assessment methods such as groundwater age dating, bacteriological sampling, groundwater modelling, and wellhead security assessments and is expected to take 12-18 months.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report to inform the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee of the key findings of the Havelock North Inquiry Stage 1 Report and how those key findings and issues are currently managed in the Christchurch context.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated to provide the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee with background information on how the key issues outlined in the Havelock North Inquiry Stage 1 Report are currently being managed by Council.

2.   Significance

2.1       The information in this report are of medium significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by completing the Significance and Engagement Policy Worksheet.

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflect the assessment.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee:

1.         Take note of the information provided in this report.

 

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       Section 5 provides the background to the Inquiry including a brief summary of the events at Havelock North.

4.2       Section 6 lists the key findings and issues that are thought to have contributed to the outbreak.

4.3       Section 7 summarises the five key issues in the Havelock North context.

4.4       Section 8 puts those five key issues in the Christchurch context. This section includes a discussion on whether a similar event could happen in Christchurch and what measures Council currently has in place to prevent this.

4.5       Section 9 discusses future work and improvement opportunities.

 

5.   Context/Background

The 2016 Havelock North Water Supply Contamination and Gastroenteritis Outbreak

5.1       Hastings District Council supplies drinking water to consumers in Havelock North.

5.2       The drinking water is sourced from an aquifer under the Heretaunga Plains (the Te Mata aquifer).

5.3       The Te Mata aquifer was thought to be a confined aquifer and the water secure from contaminants and, as such, the District Council did not treat water drawn from it.

5.4       Brookvale Road bores 1 and 2 were used to access the water from the aquifer and to pump it directly into the reticulation system, through which it was delivered to consumers.

5.5       In August 2016 some 5,500 of the town’s 14,000 residents were estimated to have become ill with Campylobacteriosis. Some 45 were subsequently hospitalised. It is possible that the outbreak contributed to three deaths, and an unknown number of residents continue to suffer health complications.

5.6       The outbreak was traced to contamination of the drinking water supplied by the two bores in Brookvale Road, on the outskirts of Havelock North.

5.7       This raised serious questions about the safety and security of New Zealand’s drinking water.

Havelock North Inquiry Stage 1

5.8       In September 2016, the Government established an inquiry into the outbreak. The Inquiry has proceeded in two stages.

5.9       Stage 1 of the Inquiry, focuses on identifying what happened, what caused the outbreak, and assessing the conduct of those responsible for providing safe drinking water to Havelock North. The Stage 1 report was released on 10 May 2017.

5.10    Stage 2 of the Inquiry will address lessons learned for the future and steps to be implemented to reduce the likelihood of such an outbreak occurring again. The Stage 2 report will be released in late 2017.

6.   Key Findings of the Stage 1 Report

6.1       The Key Findings are summarised in table 1 below.

Table 1: Havelock North Inquiry Stage 1 – Key Findings

No.

Key Finding / Issue

a)   

Contaminated drinking water was the source of the campylobacter bacterium that caused the gastrointestinal illness Campylobacteriosis among Havelock North residents in August 2016.  Sheep faeces were the likely source of the campylobacter.

 

b)   

It is highly likely that heavy rain inundated paddocks neighbouring Brookvale Road causing contaminated water to flow into a pond about 90 metres from Brookvale Road bore 1.  On 5 and 6 August 2016, water in the pond entered the aquifer and flowed across to Brookvale Road bore 1 where the bore pump drew contaminated water through the bore and into the reticulation system.

 

c)   

Contamination may also have occurred when water from neighbouring paddocks entered roadside drains adjacent to Brookvale Road bores 1 and/or 2 and then entered the bore chambers. If sufficient water had entered the chambers, it could have risen to a level where it overtopped the bore head cable holes and, because the cable seals were loose, travelled down the cables into the water supply. This scenario is regarded as much less likely than travel from the pond to the bore via the aquifer, as described above.

 

d)   

The failings, most notably by the Regional Council and the District Council, did not directly cause the outbreak, although a different outcome may have occurred in their absence.

 

e)   

The Regional Council failed to meet its responsibilities, as set out in the Resource Management Act 1991 (“RMA”), to act as guardian of the aquifers under the Heretaunga Plains.  Protection of the water source, in this case the aquifer, was the first and a critical step in the multi-barrier approach to ensuring safe drinking water.

 

f)    

The Regional Council’s knowledge and awareness of aquifer and catchment contamination risks near Brookvale Road fell below required standards. It failed to take specific and effective steps to assess the risks of contamination to the Te Mata aquifer near Brookvale Road and the attendant risks to drinking water-safety. This included through its resource consent processes; its management of the many uncapped or disused bores in the vicinity;  its State of the Environment and resource consent monitoring work;  and its liaison with the District Council.

 

g)   

The Regional Council imposed a generic condition on the water take permits it granted to the District Council, related to the safe and serviceable state of the Brookvale Road bores. This condition failed to meet the necessary standard. It then failed adequately to monitor compliance with the conditions of the permits.

 

h)   

The District Council did not embrace or implement the high standard of care required of a public drinking-water supplier, particularly in light of its experience of a similar outbreak in 1998, and the significant history of transgressions (positive E.coli test results).  As a consequence, it made key omissions, including in its assessment of risks to the drinking water supply, and it breached the Drinking-water Standards.

 

i)    

The District Council’s failings applied especially to its mid-level managers, who delegated tasks but did not adequately supervise or ensure their implementation. This caused unacceptable delays to the preparation of a Water Safety Plan, which was fundamental in addressing the risks of an outbreak of this nature.

 

j)    

The District Council did not properly manage the maintenance of plant equipment or keep records of that work; and it carried out little or no supervision of necessary follow-up work. Specifically, it was slow to obtain a report on bore head security, a key plank in source water security, and it did not promptly carry out recommended improvements.

 

k)   

There was a critical lack of collaboration and liaison between the Regional Council and the District Council. The strained nature of this relationship, together with an absence of regular and meaningful cooperation, resulted in a number of missed opportunities that may have prevented the outbreak.

 

l)    

The DWAs were too hands-off in applying the Drinking-water Standards. They should have been stricter in ensuring the District Council complied with its responsibilities, such as having an Emergency Response Plan and meeting the responsibilities of its Water Safety Plans.

 

m) 

The DWAs failed to press the District Council sufficiently about the lack of risk assessment, analysis of key aquifer catchment risks, including the link between the Brookvale Road bores and the nearby pond, and a meaningful working relationship between it and the Regional Council. They also failed to require a deeper and more holistic investigation into the unusually high rate of transgressions in the Havelock North and Hastings reticulation systems.

 

n)   

Contingency planning by the District Council was lacking. The District Council had no Contingency Plan (referred to in various contexts also as an Emergency Response Plan), draft boil water notices, or communications plans at the ready.

 

o)   

Consultancy firm MWH New Zealand Ltd (“MWH”), a technical adviser to the District Council, failed competently to assess and report on the security of the bore heads of Brookvale Road bores 1 and 2.

 

 

7.   The Five Key Issues Identified in the Stage 1 Report

7.1       Five key issues emerged from Stage 1 of the Inquiry.

7.2       Table 2 summarises those key issues and the situation in Havelock North.

Table 2: Havelock North Inquiry Stage 1 – The Five Key Issues

No.

Key Highlights in the Havelock North Context

1)   

No lessons learned from previous outbreak:

·    The Inquiry has found that the August 2016 outbreak was not Havelock North’s first experience of drinking water contamination and that the lessons that should have been learned from an earlier contamination had been forgotten.

·    In July 1998 the town had an outbreak of Campylobacteriosis. Sampling of two of the Brookvale Road bores showed campylobacter in the bore heads.  This was the same location that would feature in the August 2016 outbreak.

·    An independent report by Stu Clark (“1998 Clark Report”) concluded that the two bores were a possible source of the Campylobacteriosis, and that the likely point of entry for contaminated surface water was a leaking power supply cable gland. The Clark Report raised doubts about the confined status of the Te Mata aquifer from which the bores drew water. It recommended testing the aquifer to establish whether it was confined, along with measures to ensure the security of both bore heads.

·    Regrettably, while the two outbreaks shared remarkable similarities, it appears nothing was learned from the July 1998 outbreak.  The District Council, as the water supplier, did not take the 1998 outbreak seriously enough and implement enduring, systemic changes.  Memory of the earlier outbreak simply faded.

 

2)   

Aquifer not confined:

·    The Inquiry has found that the Te Mata aquifer, from which the Brookvale Road bores drew water, was vulnerable to contamination.  The aquifer was not confined (as was assumed prior to the Inquiry’s process).  At best, it might have been characterised as “semi-confined”, meaning its water was subject to surface influences and was vulnerable to penetrations of its rather thin and variable confining layer. 

·    The Inquiry found that near the Brookvale Road bores, the aquifer had been penetrated by a significant number of disused or uncapped bores, leaving it vulnerable to entry from contaminated water.  Additionally, the confining layer (or aquitard) near Brookvale Road bore 3 had been affected by earthworks at the neighbouring Te Mata Mushrooms property, leaving it vulnerable to entry by contaminated water.

·    The Te Mata aquifer is also no longer a source of aged water, meaning it is not a secure source of drinking water.

 

3)   

High transgression history:

·    The Inquiry has found that in recent years the Havelock North water supply had a relatively high number of positive E.coli readings, or “transgressions”.  The Hastings supply has also had a high number of positive E.coli readings. The Hastings water supply is drawn from nine bores at five locations in Hastings and Flaxmere. These bores also draw from part of the Heretaunga Plains aquifer system.  There is a known “unconfined aquifer zone” close to Portsmouth and Wilson roads. Recent positive E.coli readings from the Hastings bores have resulted in a downgraded bore status for most Hastings bores under the Drinking-water Standards. This in turn has required chlorination of the Hastings supply.

·    The Inquiry has found that the District Council tended to underestimate the significance of positive E.coli results. It sometimes ended treatment of water before clearly establishing the contamination source. While such an approach (after three subsequent clear test readings) technically meets the Drinking-water Standards, a more rigorous approach was needed with public safety at stake.

 

4)   

Poor working relationships:

·    The Inquiry has found that the Regional Council and the District Council did not work effectively and constructively together.  This was at variance with the Ministry of Health’s Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality Management for New Zealand (“Drinking-water Guidelines”), which required “maximum interaction and mutual support between the various stakeholders”.  Indeed, it is fair to say the relationship between the two local authorities before August 2016 was dysfunctional.

·    While the lack of collaboration may not have contributed directly to the outbreak, at the very least it resulted in a number of missed opportunities.  The uptake of such opportunities might well have prevented the outbreak.

·    The relationship between the two Councils deteriorated further when, following the 2016 outbreak, the Regional Council began investigating the District Council’s Brookvale Road bores. Subsequently, the Regional Council filed a criminal prosecution against the District Council on 18 November 2016, which led to a lengthy delay in the Inquiry’s work.  In the Inquiry’s view, such a proceeding was ill-advised and ought never to have been launched.

·    On the evidence the Inquiry heard, the prosecution, based on proof to the criminal standard, was bound to fail.  It was eventually dropped and replaced with two infringement notices.  The money the Regional Council spent investigating the case, reportedly $450,000, could have been more wisely applied to gaining a better understanding of the status of the aquifers beneath the Heretaunga Plains.

·    The two authorities were subsequently induced to partner with the District Health Board and the DWAs to form a Joint Working Group focused on providing clean, safe drinking water for Havelock North and Hastings. This group, guided by recommendations from the Inquiry’s interim measures hearing in December 2016, is making promising progress under an independent Chair. Its reports and action plans are available on the Inquiry website.  Much work, however, remains to be done.

·    The Joint Working Group’s mandate and progress will be dealt with in Stage 2 when the Inquiry examines systemic issues and makes recommendations about managing water supply nationally. This approach may provide a blueprint for collaboration elsewhere. No structural or legislative changes are needed for the Group’s operation, although the question of whether a regulatory framework should be developed will be part of the next stage.

 

5)   

Protozoa risk:

·    The Inquiry has found that campylobacter was the cause of the illnesses in Havelock North.  Nevertheless, where diarrhoea and vomiting symptoms are involved, the possibility of protozoan pathogens, such as cryptosporidium or giardia, cannot be ruled out without careful testing. The response to the outbreak did not sufficiently consider this risk.

·    The Inquiry has learned that a number of the major outbreaks of waterborne illness overseas have involved cryptosporidiosis, for example Western Georgia in 1987, Milwaukee in 1993, and Northern Ireland in 2002. Waterborne protozoa outbreaks have also occurred in New Zealand in Masterton in 2003; the Waikato District in 1997; and the Tauranga District in 1995. Giardia outbreaks have been recorded in Deniston in 1996, Auckland in 1993, and Dunedin in 1991. A table of waterborne outbreaks is at Appendix 7 (page 192).

·    Some managers at the District Council in the present case seemed to have little or no knowledge about protozoan pathogens and the significant risks associated with them.  Gaining an awareness of, and education about, such risks (and how they might be identified at an early stage) will be an important part of Stage 2. The Annual Report on Drinking-water Quality 2015-2016 states that achievement of protozoal standards was at a level of only 82 per cent across the whole population covered by the report. While this represented a 2 per cent improvement over the previous year, protozoal achievement is still well below optimum.

·    The risks associated with waterborne diseases in New Zealand are well recognised.  The Drinking-water Guidelines emphasise that “untreated drinking water contaminated with pathogens presents a significant risk to human health”.  Such risk suggests it is vital that this time lessons must be permanently learned from the Havelock North Campylobacteriosis outbreak.

 

 

8.   The Five Key Issues in the Christchurch Context

8.1       Table 3 puts the five key issues into the Christchurch context.

8.2       It includes a discussion on whether a similar event has happened or could happen in Christchurch and what measures Council already has in place to prevent this.

Table 3: Havelock North Inquiry Stage 1 – The Five Key Issues in the Christchurch Context

No.

Key Highlights

The Christchurch Context

Has a similar situation occurred before / could potentially happen?

Measures that CCC already has in place to prevent this

1)   

No lessons learned from previous outbreak

·    Although CCC has not experienced repeated outbreaks, reviewing of operational practices is important and takes place on a regular basis, either via informal meetings or formal review processes such as Water Safety Plan reviews and implementation audits, risk management workshops, wellhead security assessments etc.

·    Several years ago CCC improved the design of wellheads for new water supply wells with the aim to reduce contamination risks. The standard wellhead design is now an ‘above ground’, fully enclosed wellhead which is an improvement over the previously used ‘below ground’ wellhead chamber.

·    In early 2016 CCC started to remediate the roofs of water reservoirs with impermeable roof linings

·    Council staff network with their counterparts at other Councils and have the opportunity to share knowledge.

2)   

Aquifer not confined

·    Some areas in the Northwest Christchurch water supply receive water from an unconfined shallow aquifer.

·    While no Protozoa was ever found in the shallow groundwater Council decided to replace the shallow wells with deep wells in order to improve the water grading from D to B.

·    When the Northwest DWSNZ Upgrade project is complete then no water supply wells will draw water from the unconfined aquifer.

·    There are still shallow wells in the confined aquifer which will be used for public water supply. However, these wills will be monitored closely and gradually replaced as part of CCC’s ongoing well replacement programme.

·    The Northwest DWSNZ Upgrade programme has been accelerated and shallow bores are not in service in the NW zone. Customers are being fed from either the new deep bores, or adjacent secure supplies.  All shallow wells will be fully decommissioned and replaced by deeper wells by the end of December 2019.

·    When the Northwest DWSNZ Upgrade project is complete, CCC will work on an updated groundwater model which will provide valuable information regarding groundwater flows and pathways.

·    Modelling will be undertaken as a collaborative approach with various organisations contributing to it.

·    Council has excellent working relationships with Environment Canterbury / CDHB and other stakeholders and participates in projects which enhance knowledge of the Christchurch / West Melton groundwater system. Recent examples include work on groundwater age dating (ECan and GNS) and characterisation of Total Coliforms in groundwater (CDHB and ESR).

3)   

High transgression history

·    CCC’s water supplies have no history of excessive transgression events.

·    In the last 5 years there were 5 detections of low level E. coli at water supply wells.

·    4 out of the 5 detections (March 2013, April 2015, February 2016 and March 2016) occurred at unconfined shallow wells in the Northwest zone. Those unconfined shallow wells are now turned off.

·    The 5th detection occurred at a confined shallow well in March 2014 and was attributed to the flooding of the wellhead chamber as a result of the storm that hit Christchurch in March 2014.

·    Vulnerable shallow wells in the Northwest zone are turned off and will be replaced by deep wells.

·    Wellhead security assessments identify issues and repairs get carried out as required.

·    CCC carries out water quality sampling well above the DWSNZ requirements.

·    CCC have a strong working relationship with ECan and other agencies and are participating in various research projects on groundwater age and quality.

·    CCC have contamination response procedures in place which outline roles and responsibilities and actions to be taken.

·    All CCC owned water supplies have approved Water Safety Plans which get reviewed on a regular basis.

4)   

Poor working relationships

This is unlikely to happen as CCC have well established relationships with relevant organisations and stakeholders.

·    Council has excellent working relationships with Environment Canterbury / CDHB and other stakeholders and meet on a regular basis.

·    CCC participates in projects which provide further knowledge on the Christchurch / West Melton groundwater system.

·    CCC is represented at the Canterbury Drinking Water Reference Group which was established in September 2016 in response to the Havelock North event.

5)   

Protozoa risk

·    While no Protozoa was ever found in samples obtained from the unconfined, shallow groundwater in Christchurch it cannot be entirely ruled out that contamination could not occur.

Refer to the processes outlined in No 1 and No 2.

 

9.   Future Work and Areas of Improvement

9.1       Council staff recognise that there is a need for regular reviews of existing processes and procedures and to identify areas of improvement.

9.2       While stage 2 of the inquiry will have a closer look at systematic changes required to be implemented on a nationwide basis, staff are keen to commence this process now.

9.3       Meetings will be held in the coming months between relevant teams within the organisation and external stakeholders to progress this. Work undertaken by the Canterbury Drinking Water Reference Group will support this.

9.4       Stage 2 of the inquiry – to be released in December 2017 – will provide further guidance.
