Everyone agrees water should be clean but how did this mess arise. Who gave permits to change land use from forests to dairy farms. Both govt and planners are just as much to blame as farmers. in waikato the planners gave away more water than could be provided to intensify farming. How are farmers to blame for incompetent planners? Some of us have tread lightly on the land and are now penalised by ridiculous farm plans made by industry for industry and implemented by planners who happen to make money from making plans.
