Revoke the resource consent for the export of Upper Hutt aquifer water.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!


In 2013 Greater Wellington Regional Council gave resource consent to extract 180,000,000 litres of water per year from an existing bore in Refreshment Place in Upper Hutt.

The consent allows International Springs Ltd to extract water from the aquifer for export. The resource consent was not publicly notified.

Te Awakairangi, Hutt river has declined in water quality with low flows and toxic algae during summer. Our population has increased and Upper Hutt has water restrictions all year round. Extracting 180,000,000 litres of water per year would cause harm to the environment and water shortages for residents. 

We ask that the resource consent for the bore in Refreshment place is revoked.

Please sign the petition to GWRC to revoke the resource consent.
