Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel spoke to Chris Lynch about the City Council's concerns over the recent consent application to Environment Canterbury by Belfast water bottling plant Cloud Ocean.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel says the main concern raised by staff is the consent asks to take water from the aquifer that we take water from for our drinking water.

She says they have made an application for a variation to an existing consent which they have to take from a shallow bore but our concern is they could take all of it from the deeper bore, which certainly seems to be the intention as they have already put that on their bottles.
