News Our Work Waiwhakaiho River Being a Wai Warrior: as Kiwi as BBQs and cricket 26 February 2021 Our summer’s been a bit of a mixed bag weather-wise, but lately we’ve been seeing more of the hot, dry weather! That also means that our rivers and streams that supply our drinking water are under increasing stress as their flows get lower with each dry day. Rivers and streams are the source of three of our public water supplies: New Plymouth, Inglewood and Okato. Their flows depend entirely on rainfall. Of course it’s not just us who rely on these streams and rivers: there are untold numbers of aquatic creatures who need these waterways to be deep enough to provide a cool, healthy environment for them. A shallow stream is a warm stream, and it puts our water ecosystems under stress. From a Wai Warrior water conservation point of view we’ve been lucky to have the occasional rainfall to charge up the rivers again, but they drop quickly and soon heat up when the sun comes out. We face the challenge of leaving enough water to keep our streams and rivers healthy while also providing enough water for cooking, cleaning and industry. New Plymouth District is one of the thirstiest places in New Zealand. Our water use is up to 60% higher than comparable areas in New Zealand; that’s something that we can fix without spending millions on our water network to increase water storage. We can do it by changing our habits. Up to 65 per cent of all of our water is used by households – but only one-fifth of that is used for drinking or cooking. That means we have a lot of scope for cutting down how much water we use in summer as well as throughout the year, leaving more in our rivers for fish and other critters to survive (and for us to swim in and enjoy). Water conservation should be as much a part of our way of life as BBQs and cricket. From early March we’re going to be asking for feedback from people about our water conservation plan which is part of our 10-year plan. This plan will build on the work council already does to conserve water, such as spending more money fixing leaky pipes, making council buildings more water efficient and introducing a green plumber to help our community do their bit to conserve water. Another key feature of the plan is the introduction of water meters. Our industrial and commercial water supplies already have water meters and we think water meters on our residential supplies could reduce our district’s water usage by 25% each year, leading to savings of $121 million over the next 30 years, and helping keep our natural water supplies healthy too. But that doesn’t mean we can’t all play our part as Wai Warriors now. It doesn’t take big changes to make a difference: just tweaking our daily habits will lead to sizeable water savings, and it can be easy as one, two, three. One: be aware of how much water you use Pay attention to how long everyone in your household uses the shower. Do you use a hose to clean the car, house windows or driveway? Do any taps leak? Two: make easy tweaks to cut down use If you’re watering the garden, reduce how much you lose to evaporation by watering only in the evening or early morning, and not when it’s windy; and put down mulch. (Up to 70 per cent of water in a garden can be lost to evaporation.) Fill a 1L milk bottle with stones and pop it into the toilet cistern to save one litre of water every time you flush. Put a time limit on showers. Use a bucket and sponge for washing the car and a broom for cleaning the driveway, not the hose. Dont leave the tap running when brushing teeth or shaving; and when cleaning vegetables or washing dishes, pop the plug in. Three: make it fun Set up a family challenge to see who can use the least water for daily tasks. Get your children to help choose native plants for the garden that can thrive in local conditions, needing less additional watering. Look online to see how to build your own rainwater harvesting system and make it a family project this weekend. Go camping – and find out how little water you really need to use! Our water is a precious resource – let’s be Wai Warriors and make every drop count. Residential water restrictions in New Plymouth District run until 31 March. Use hand-held hoses only on the odds and evens system – at odd-numbered houses on odd-numbered days and even-numbered houses on even-numbered days. Unattended hoses, sprinklers and irrigation systems are banned during this period. In Okato level 2 restrictions apply from Saturday 27 February. Find out more about water restrictions.

News Our Work flooding on wrantage street More band-aids or a proper fix for our water woes? 24 February 2021 We’re looking at getting our plumbing fixed and like any careful homeowner we’re comparing estimates as an extraordinary meeting is held on Friday for Councillors to debate the draft 10-year plan before it gets the green light to go to the public for feedback. We’ve got four options to fix our plumbing from doing nothing (zero extra dollars) to a patch-and-hope at the cheap end (an additional $78 million) to a premium service ($229 million additional funding). The public meeting on Friday will see Councillors examine 400 pages of detail around the proposed $3billion work programme for the next decade. They’ll be asking if we can afford it as it could mean a 12% rates rise in the first year and a 6% rise on average over the next nine years. “The draft 10-year plan reflects Council’s commitment to adequately funding the public infrastructure that forms the foundation of our Sustainable Lifestyle Capital. None of us want regular water outages or sewage over our lawns or streams, but these types of scenarios will become more common if we don’t address the past chronic underinvestment in our 1,700-kilometre water network now,” says Mayor Neil Holdom. It focuses on three big areas: Fixing our Plumbing which includes introducing residential water meters as part of a broader water savings plan. Greening our Place, including the Taranaki Traverse and the Coastal Walkway extension to Waitara, planting a 30-hectare urban forest and NPDC’s vehicle fleet going green. Paying it Forward, with NPDC chipping in $40 million to a possible multi-purpose sport, event and lifestyle hub in central New Plymouth. The meeting comes as international ratings agency S&P Global boosts NPDC’s long-term rating from AA to AA+, reflecting its sound financial management and confidence in the future. If the draft plan gets the green light by Councillors on Friday, we will be taking the draft 10-year plan to residents over March so you can give your feedback.

News Our Work a woman standing behind a recycling bin Mixed results in NPDC audit of kerbside recycling bins 23 February 2021 A rise in non-recyclable rubbish being dumped in recycling bins has prompted calls for people to lift their Zero Waste awareness. A summer survey of nearly 300 household recycling bins across the district showed that contamination – or non-recyclable items – is on the rise compared to previous years. The number of homes getting a three-month suspension from recycling collection has also increased due to contamination – up from five in February last year to 50 now. “The survey shows we’ve scored some recycling wins, with non-recyclable soft plastics in the yellow bins down from more than half of households two years ago to 9% now, and contamination from takeaway coffee cups – which aren’t recyclable – fell from about 9% to under 5%,” says NPDC Manager Resource and Recovery Kimberley Hope. “But the slight rise overall in contamination shows we need to do better at checking the items before placing in the recycling bin, as we all end up wearing the extra landfill and environmental costs that this brings as we move towards our Zero Waste goal.” The survey spotlighted Ōākura as the best recycling suburb, with the least contamination at 5.3% on average, followed by Lepperton, Highlands Park, Merrilands and Inglewood. Coming in last, with some room to improve, were Fitzroy and Marfell (equal on an average of 21% contamination), just behind Bell Block East, Hurdon and Strandon. The survey was separate from the regular bin inspections, where 150 bins are checked for contamination each day across Taranaki region year-round. Bin inspectors and collection vehicle drivers both check bins for contamination, and collectors will not empty a recycling bin if it has too much contamination. “By rinsing out bottles and containers and removing lids, recycling will drastically improve. It’s also important to place used tissues and plastics 3, 4, 6 and 7 into the red landfill bin, along with products made out of more than one material – such as chip canisters, long-life juice and milk cartons, and toy packaging,” says Ms Hope. An easy checklist of what items go in the red landfill bin or yellow recycling bin is on the NPDC Recycling and Rubbish app which can be downloaded to your phone on Android and iPhone or you can go to the recycling guide on our website.

Our Work News street lights and car lights shown on a dark night Emissions halved since 2006 22 February 2021 Our district is growing, but NPDC has shrunk its carbon footprint over the last 15 years, even while it serves more people. And our emissions are expected to fall even faster if Councillors greenlight proposals to 'Green our Place' in the draft 10-year plan. New Plymouth District had a population of about 69,000 in 2006 and NPDC’s carbon emissions of just over 7,000 tonnes then was expected to hit almost 8,000 tonnes today. But NPDC’s actual emissions today, even though it now serves more than 80,000 people, are less than half the forecast figure at about 3,500 tonnes thanks to a range of measures including: LED street lights that use less than 40% of the electricity of the old street lights. A new press that helps dry sludge faster at the Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP), cutting gas use by a quarter to make our organic Bioboost fertiliser. New technology that uses 18% less energy to treat almost 50% more sewage at the WWTP. Upgraded lights and air conditioning that have halved electricity use at the NPDC Civic Centre in Liardet Street. "We’re gearing up for a low-emissions future, and moves like all-electric rubbish trucks are helping to drive us there, but we’re looking at other things we can do to make our carbon footprint even smaller through our proposed Climate Action Framework and in our draft 10-year work programme,” says NPDC Group Manager Planning and Infrastructure David Langford. From March 3, the public will be asked for their feedback on the $3 billion draft 10-year plan which focuses on three big areas: Fixing our Plumbing which includes introducing residential water meters as part of a broader water savings plan. Greening our Place, including the Taranaki Traverse and the Coastal Walkway extension to Waitara, planting a 30 hectare urban forest and NPDC’s vehicle fleet going green. Paying it Forward, with NPDC chipping in $40m to a possible multi-purpose sport, event and recreational hub in central New Plymouth.

The Inglewood High School student took up the nationwide Aotearoa Bike Challenge to improve his fitness and is often seen racking up the kilometres on the Coastal Walkway. “I really enjoy the sense of freedom and independence. Cycling strengthens my core muscles and my legs, and I enjoy getting out and meeting new people,” he says. “I’ve set myself the goal to do some of the bike trails around New Zealand – something I would have never thought I could achieve in the past.” Thousands of individuals, groups and workplaces are logging their bike rides on the Aotearoa Bike Challenge during February. It’s a great way to rediscover a love for cycling, especially as a 10-minute ride is all that’s needed to log a trip. Let’s Go has several spot prizes available for New Plymouth District residents who take part in the nationwide challenge, including two prizes of $750 to improve bike equipment or facilities at workplaces, clubs or groups.

News Art Events and Exhibitions Lifestyle Maioha Kara Salutations, Govett-Brewster Art Gallery Maioha Kara Salutations 05 February 2021 An artwork currently in the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery’s street-facing Window Gallery celebrates the change of the seasons and investigates the cyclical patterns of our internal and external environments. Created by Maioha Kara (Waikato, Ngāti Kahungunu, Te Arawa, Ngāti Porou), Salutations draws on the geometric patterns of Māori and Cook Island art forms, including whakairo, raranga, tukutuku, kōwhaiwhai and tivaevae, to explore the cycles and systems of te ao Māori and the natural world. Kara considers the rimu body of Salutations to be a taonga. Her shallow excavations on its surface are designed to engage with the wood’s natural characteristics, and speak to the intricate and interconnected cosmological relationships between the resources of the natural world and matauranga Māori. By filling these indentations with coloured glitter, a shimmering composition is created which gives Salutations a sense of mauri, or energy. Guided by the concept of iraira (shine, glitter; have spots) the vibrant colours of the glitter and gallery walls reflect the shifting of the seasons from spring to summer. Exhibition curator Hanahiva Rose says: “We are delighted to include this new commission by Maioha Kara in the Govett-Brewster’s summer suite of exhibitions.”  “Maioha is an exciting early-career artist whose work draws on the principles of toi Māori and narratives of te ao Māori to examine our relationship with the natural world.”  “We are especially excited to welcome her work alongside the monumental exhibition Tai Moana Tai Tangata by Brett Graham, with whom she shares close whakapapa connections to Waikato.” “Salutations positioning, on display 24/7 to all who pass or enter the Gallery, and the feedback we have been receiving at the Gallery has been very positive. The work’s vibrancy and enthusiasm have been particularly noted.” NPDC’s Govett-Brewster Art Gallery/Len Lye Centre is the New Plymouth District’s cultural hub featuring galleries, a 62-seat cinema, a shop and Monica’s Eatery café.
