Smarter about water: Swain Climate change, particularly the possi- bility of severe weather events, is now an important part of the Wellington Regional Council's thinking and long term planning, Upper Hutt regional council representative Paul Swain told Upper Hutt Soroptimists recently. The regional council has taken on board the majority opinion of climate scientists who argue that global carbon emissions have had a negative effect on the environment with floods, droughts and other severe weather events more likely as a result,'' Mr Swain said. You only have to look at the tele- vision news to see that weather patterns are changing around the world. The regional council has decided that it's better to be safe than sorry, and we are taking this into account in our planning, particularly around water supply, flood protection and pub- lic transport,'' Mr Swain said. We think that droughts during summer months are likely to increase, so we are currently investigating a third storage lake at Kaitoke as well as increasing the storage capacity of the twin lakes at Te Marua,'' Mr Swain said. However, we also need to encourage more people to store water in the case of an earthquake or severe drought. Those of us who live in areas like Upper Hutt, where water is readily available, have a different attitude to those who live in the country where water is precious and has to be stored carefully. It seems incredibly wasteful to allow rain water to flow off our roofs and into stormwater drains,'' Mr Swain said. We will have to get a lot smarter about storing water in the future.'' Fortunately Upper Hutt has a high level of flood protection through our system of stopbanks. However, we can never be complacent, and the stopbanks need to be constantly maintained and upgraded. We have just completed flood protection work at Bridge Rd, and a multi-million dollar project is under way at Boulcott, designed to protect local houses and the hospital,'' Mr Swain said.
