Water usage skyrockets More care necessary By COLIN WILLIAMS Three months into the financial year and Upper Hutt s water con- sumption is running significantly over budget, if not out of control. Indications are that we are heading for a bad consumption year, city infrastructure director Lachlan Wallach says. We are only three months in to the new water year, most of it in winter, and we are already $27,000 over budget. That consumption doesn t really make sense. It s been mild but it s certainly not watering con- ditions, he says. Residents need to become more aware of their water usage and the direct impact of careless use on their rates. The $27,000 extra cost is pure usage , he says. What the hell are they using it for? People have got to realise the value of water. Mr Wallach told Wednesday s services committee other areas like Wellington City and Porirua had caught up with Upper Hutt in improving their leak detection systems and that contributed to the city s increased share of the region s overall use. We have been the best in that game and now the others are catching up and that s throwing the percentage out of whack, committee chair Dean Rabbitt says. Upper Hutt is still using a lot more water than expected for this time of year, Mr Wallach says. Leak detection has shown nothing significant, certainly not anything at this level . It appears to be general con- sumption. It seems strange; maybe people are washing their cars and their houses and it soon adds up, Mr Wallach says. People need to know they have to be careful at all times. The message has to be put out there. It s a tough one. If we advertise [about water consumption] now people will say you are joking and then in summer they could be a bit blase, Mr Rabbitt says. Painted perfection: Jessica Williams, 16, impressed judges at the New Zealand Art Show with this painting of a tui. Young artist's work impresses By JIMMY NESS Jessica Williams, 16, was recently selected as one of the youngest solo panel exhibitors in the New Zealand Art Show at TSB Bank Arena. The Pinehaven resident entered the show after a recommendation from a friend. She hoped to gain a place as a general exhibitor, but judges were so impressed with her work they offered her a solo panel. I felt quite humbled as it is such an amazing opportunity, Jessica says. The majority of the artists were quite established, so as a secondary school student I felt a sense of achievement and excite- ment. The exhibition ran from July 28 till July 31 and included artists from around the country. Jessica says her collection was based on native birds and the col- onisation of New Zealand. We are surrounded by wood pigeons, tuis and fantails. They are extremely beautiful birds with vibrant colour and detail. I enjoyed the challenge of bringing them alive on canvas. I had been studying the colonisation of New Zealand last year at school and so I decided to combine a thing of life and beauty, with history. Jessica says she sold several of her paintings at the event. One of my works purchased is now on its way back to Russia, which is quite something. A little bit of me and a little bit of New Zealand for their wall. Jessica hopes to enter the show next year and has a performing arts scholarship at Chilton Saint James School.
