The Greater Kiwi Water Heist

Water, water, every where,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, every where,
Nor any drop to drink.

The very deep did rot: O Christ!
That ever this should be!
Yea, slimy things did crawl with legs
Upon the slimy sea.

I – THE GREAT WATER HEIST


ROB DAVIDSON LIANNE DALZIELLE ON FIRE AGAIN DUE TO THEIR LINKS TO CHINESE CORPORATIONS INTERESTED IN OUR WATER AS COUNCIL AROUND THE COUNTRY HAVE MYSTERIOUS ISSUES WITH THEIR WATER CATCHMENT.

The top secret WWII Cashmere strategy and command bunker (Pindar) in Christchurch official address is 64 Hackthorne Road located above and behind Princess Margaret’s hospital. This in fact leads you down a culdesac of houses that connect to a dirt track where the now closed tunnel entrance can be located as water trickles out from somewhere.

You can’t get in to the old WWII bunker complex any more but even a quick wander round the track, the entrance, the hospital ground and surrounding grounds, reveal signs of the old military headquarters and demonstrate how much of the hospital’s infrastructure is located below ground level and connects in fact directly to the network of civilian infrastructure (power water communications), much of which include under ground tunnels, that runs and controls Christchurch.

Les Collins lifts the lid on a wet well chamber at the new Ascot Reserve pumping station on Beach Rd in North New Brighton.

Many of these tunnels are only pipe sized which you could not even crawl through but many are large enough to accommodate a standing man. Not surprising the quantity of water it has to deal with 375 million cubic metres flows beneath the city each year equal to 150,000 Olympic sized swimming pools.

A week before the Mosque shooting the Canterbury’s Regional Council (Environmental Canterbury otherwise known as Ecan), who oversee Canterbury’s fertile water rich plains (and whose post quake history is the story of the battle for water control and the dismantling of democracy), posted the following story on its website Christchurch’s water- ‘What’s the Story’.

The $10 million Ascot Reserve pumping station in North New Brighton will soon service 18,000 properties in northeast Christchurch.

https://www.ecan.govt.nz/…/christchurchs-water-whats-the-s…/

https://www.stuff.co.nz/…/water-restrictions-in-the-pipelin…

The post was created in response to proposed water restrictions and public outrage at permits being granted for water bottling and sums up Christchurch City’s valuable water reserves “Where is this water? There is water everywhere beneath the city, filling the pore spaces in the gravelly sediments under the ground. There is just one interconnected aquifer under the city – not a series of separate aquifers – and water flows through the sediments. Users extract water through bores or wells – Christchurch City Council has nearly 150 bores throughout the city which supply water to houses and businesses through a network of pipes and supporting infrastructure”.

The post list the sites as follows;

123 million cubic metres of rainfall onto the areas north and west of the city
252 million cubic metres of water that ‘leaks’ from the Waimakariri River and flows via shallow aquifers towards Christchurch.

208 million cubic metres enters spring-fed streams such as the Heathcote and the Avon/Otakaro and flows to the estuary and the sea.
15 million cubic metres flows underground to the sea or other springs.
152 million cubic metres allocated for Christchurch (“but not all is used”).

Water allocations in Christchurch are:
57% to Christchurch City Council for community supplies.
38% allocated to industry.
7% allocated for water bottling.


The council in response to growing anger of its citizen stated “no more water can be allocated except for community supplies (Christchurch City Council).Industry or water bottlers are prohibited from applying for new consents to take water – but they can trade or transfer existing usage consents or apply for a variation to an existing consent”.

The post was made March 7th eight days before the shooting which took place three days after it was discovered Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel had to admit failure (now forgotten largely due to the tragedy of the Christchurch attacks), on her part after not disclosing a family connection to water bottler Cloud Ocean Water. The now elected mayor admitting there was a conflict of interest she “should have managed”.

Dalziel husband Rob Davidson law practice Davidson Legal, was representing Cloud Ocean and had offered to use personal contacts to lobby politicians. That offer has since been revoked so Dalziel maintains.

https://postmanproductions.wordpress.com/…/canterbury-tale…/

Dalziel concedes there was a conflict of interest over her knowledge about her husband’s work, admitting she should have told colleagues.

Dalziel however maintains she and her husband keep their work separate and had not planned to use her reputation to procure business. Davidson & Associates note on the company’s own web site “Rob is married to Lianne Dalziel, the mayor of Christchurch, who was a former member of Parliament for Christchurch East, and a former Minister of Immigration and Commerce”.

On December David & Associates again came into the firing line after John Minto became the second person to call for an investigation into Christchurch mayor Lianne Dalziel political donations. Minto is asking the city council’s electoral officer to investigate why Dalziel only revealed the identity of six people, who each donated more than $1500 to her campaign.

They donated through an auction her husband ran. She only declared the total amount that came from him. Minto alleges Dalziel used the same system before winning the mayoralty in 2016.

“Lianne Dalziel is a lawyer herself. She’s run numerous campaigns, political campaigns. She did not want to identify the major donors to her campaign and I don’t think acceptable and I think we need an investigation to get to the bottom of it.”

The six donors were revealed yesterday as Wei Min Lu ($17,850), Yong Chen ($3920), Zhe Cheng Tan ($2800), Jiang Ping Wang ($2350), Grandland Investment Ltd ($2950) and Yang Xia Wu ($1750).

Grandland specialises in Christchurch rental property market.

Dalziel today blamed her husband for the lack of transparency, saying he had believed the donors who gave more than $1500 did not need to be declared, and she had acted on his advice. So much for her previous statement that she and hubby kept their work “separate”.

In 2017 Cloud Ocean, who have consent to export 1.5 billion litres of water a year, was found boring for water it was not permitted to take. It however is unlikely to be fined legislation does not allow for a fine or tougher punishment, and more serious enforcement action will only happen if Cloud Ocean Water continues to pump water illegally. Cloud Ocean is currently building a second bottling and distribution plant on Belfast Rd, a few hundred metres from where its first factory is located already. That plant will be operational in 2021.

Meanwhile large swathes of Christchurch face water restrictions to keep levels of chlorine to a minimum while the council continues work to improve the safety of the drinking water supply. Restrictions are likely to be imposed on about 60,000 homes in central areas, with the possibility of households being asked to water gardens every other day. In June the Ministry of Health stripped Canterbury’s drinking water assessor of the power to approve wells as being secure enough for chlorine to be removed. Much like Canterbury Land Fund fiasco, of the previous century, it appears as if Central government (and its corporate lobbyist) has its eyes on Canterbury’s assets with the help of few people on the inside.

In Hamilton the first move for privatisation of municipal infrastructure, tied to control of water, began on February 2018 when sensors were manually altered discharging waste water into the Waikato. Turning off the wastewater station’s pumps required access to its computer software. This required a password, but not a password that was user specific. The Council was unable to find out who had changed that setting. The discharge one of several that have taken place recently around the country and appears to be part of an orchestrated campaign in which councils end up looking incompetent forcing the government (and it corporate strategic partners) to step in and takeover water management as at the same time the government has rolled out legislation which makes new houses built fund waste water plants and roads infrastructure we previously paid for out their existing rates and taxes.

Meanwhile the council Wellington Water in another step toward water privatisation have signed a 10 year, $17 million per year contract with global environmental services provider Veolia, to operate and maintain the four wastewater treatment plants that serve metropolitan Wellington. Again 2019 Wellington “ageing pipes” hit the headlines with “work frantically being done to fix a sewage spill which has caused heavy traffic, disrupted summer swimming plans and caused people to limit water use.”

https://www.stuff.co.nz/environment/118357462/wellingtons-wastewater-to-enter-the-harbour-this-morning–stay-out-save-water

Legislation to fast track water privatisation was passed in 2002 as part of changes to the Local Government Act 2002. It extended the 15-year limit on water-service contracts to 35 years and allow companies to build, own and operate new water and wastewater treatment plants during the contract period. The changes also sought to stop councils controlling the management of privately run water services, although they will retain final say on pricing and policy.

Christchurch water is a liquid gold mine too bad about all the people on top using up all that valuable water they’ll have to go. Half jokes aside that water needs infrastructure. That infrastructure in fact runs along the Avon river, the heart of the city, much of it was red-zoned due to liquid faction caused by the volcanic silt and up the port hills. Access points to such infrastructure networks inevitably always ends up being located not far from the locations of interest I end up visiting.

Chapter Ends

However other section from my upcoming books State Secrets III Canterbury Tales relevant to this topic include’

Once complete, wastewater from new pump stations at Cashin Quay in Lyttelton, Governor’s Bay and Diamond Harbour will be pumped onto a pump station in Bromley, via a pipeline recently built above Lyttelton Tunnel and the Heathcote Valley pipeline under construction. The scale of that pipe line is represented by massive money attached to it, $8.2 billion covering, roads freshwater and wastewater pipes with a 2.4 billion million insurance policy. Water is vital for life a week before the Mosque shootings everyone in Christchurch was talking water as the Mayor Liane Dalzeil own links to a water bottling plant were revealed (the events in Christchurch however mean that water politics was soon forgotten). As we move toward water privatisation those “below ground assets” represent a gold mine to those who own and maintain them. For they are critical infrastructure, for you own that you own not just the city you own its people.

It also leads me to anticipate their will outbreaks of fire this summer in Christchurch and else were in New Zealand. Which no doubt will also result in water restrictions and assist the current push of the New Zealand Fire Service Fire Rescue Emergency NZ to be merged with Civil Defence. An observant person might recall the number of fire trucks that are now Civil Defence yellow and not the traditional red. A move which comes as Civil Defence increasingly falls under the jurisdiction of the Prime Minister Office as Civil Defence is renamed the National Emergency Management Agency and is headed increasingly by police military and former United Nation staffers.For example Civil Defence is run by a former United Nations Disaster Assessment & Coordination Team director Sarah Black whose husband Jim Stuart-Black is the National Manager, for Special Operations in the New Zealand Fire Service now called FENZ.

Right on Que as I wrote that very paragraph came the news that Dunedin will not run out of water after a massive fire damaged the city’s water supply, but it will come at a cost.

“The fire took hold near Middlemarch on November 9th covering 5000 hectares of grassland and the city’s main catchment area Deep Stream. Consequently Dunedin risked facing a summer without its largest water supply which has been contaminated (as happened in Hamilton, Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch). Deep Stream supplies about 80 percent of the city’s water needs – was estimated as being out “out of action for up to a year after becoming contaminated with firefighting chemicals and ash (just like in Auckland). In the end Deep Stream was cleared within a month but never the less it added to a picture of a sudden focus on our water supply that seems clearly contrived.

The DCC told journalist the contingency plan “won’t be cheap, costing $3000 each day to run the pump until the Deep Stream catchment was back online, Mr Dyer saidThe city has enough water to cater for its citizens, but he said residents would need to conserve water to make sure restrictions weren’t needed this summer.

This is from Facebook page Sep23 2018 and also relates to the water grab going on under our noses.

POOLING IGNORANCE:

II: How big business conned us that 1080 saved birds so as to take control of NZ
Water Forrest Air & Energy resources:

Timeline of a take over; (Photo Doc director Lou Sanford & a few of his bird loving mates from Fonterra keen to get into the water monopoly business).

1. 1970-1984 Once upon a time energy companies had no interest in birds only in profit and if their pollution killed man or bird to bad – but that has all changed right?

“1970, almost 10% of New Zealand’s population signed the “Save Manapouri” petition – protesting against the Government’s proposal to raise the levels of lakes Manapouri and Te Anau as part of the Manapouri Power Project to provide electricity for the aluminium smelter at Tiwai Point {based in Bluff which has oneof the highest neurological disorder rates in nz -edito note) . In 1974, the “Save Aramoana” campaign was launched to protest against the proposal to build a second aluminium smelter at the tiny settlement of Aramoana, at the mouth of the Otago Harbour. Public interest groups fought the Government in the Courts, and won. Thousands also joined in related protests against the associated proposals to build a hydro-electric dam on the upper stretches of the Clutha River, at Clyde. Concern about the lack of proper legal protection for New Zealand’s wild and scenic rivers led to the creation of a system of “Water Conservation Orders” to “recognise and sustain the amenity afforded by waters in their natural state” – Sir Geoffrey Palmer

Image result for manapouri protest

…Victory, however, was short-lived. The response of the Government of the time, led by Prime Minister Sir Robert Muldoon, was to legislate to give greater power to central government to pursue its economic development agenda…..

.In 1982, the Government went one step further. It enacted the Clutha Development (Clyde Dam) Empowering Act 1982 to “grant water rights to the Crown in respect of the operation of the Clyde Dam on the Clutha River”– “notwithstanding anything in the Water and Soil Conservation Act 1967 or in any other enactment” or the decisions that had already been made by the High Court and the Planning Tribunal to decline the Crown’s application for such a consent. Those actions did not sit well with New Zealanders’ fundamental sense of fair play. In 1984 an election was held and the Government was defeated…….years on the concept of sustainable development remains a central paradigm of development. Its importance has been repeatedly reaffirmed by the members of the United Nations, including New Zealand – most recently at the “Rio + 20” conference held in Rio in 2012” (were Agenda 2030 was introduced).

2. 1980: Privatisation of NZ energy sector begins. Muldoon later rescinded his policy of privatisation but was over ruled by his caucus. This was called the Revolt of the Colonels and many of those MP’s, like Barry Brill, went on to be board of directors in the power companies.

The process of privatisation was carried on under the David Lange administration under the auspice of Roger Douglas and known as Rogernomics in the 1980’s – who also saw the undervaluation of NZ Forestry shortly before the first round of Treaty settlements.

Meridian was one of three electricity companies formed from the break-up of the Electricity Corporation of New Zealand (ECNZ) in 1998–99, taking over the Waitaki River and the Manapouri hydro schemes.

Meridian originated from the break-up of the Electricity Corporation of New Zealand (ECNZ) in 1999 as a result of the reforms of the New Zealand Electricity Market. Meridian’s share of ECNZ was corporatised as a state-owned enterprise with its own board of directors and with two Ministerial shareholders: the Minister of Finance and the Minister of State-Owned Enterprises

In 2008, Meridian issued and sold the first carbon credits issued and sold under the JI program of the Kyoto Protocol.

New Zealand was advised by Price Water House Cooper if we signed the protocols we would make 3 billion in profit – after being ratified Price Water House cooper stated they had made a 6 billion per year “accounting error” and NZ would loose 3 billion a year.

Following political rangling Tiwai own carbon bill would be subsidised by NZ tax payer for years.

Meanwhile the smelter disposal of the toxic dross, by produced by aluminium slag (which induced a fatal phenomenon in workers known as Potts Lung) remains a source of controversy in Southland.

Today 2/3 of our carbon credits are now owned by the energy industry.

3. 2013 The Supreme Court rejects the Maori Council’s attempt for a full investigation into the Government’s decision on water ownership rights. However Justice Sian Elias (Hugh Fletcher, CEO Fletcher Challenge, wife) did offer consolation to the Maori Council. “While the appellants have failed as to the ultimate result, they nonetheless succeeded on an important point of principle, namely that the Crown was bound to comply with the principles of the Treaty before deciding to sell the shares” National Party Bill English told crowds at an Auckland Chamber of Commerce luncheon that if the Supreme Court ruled in favour of the Maori Council, asset sales would be shelved. “I guess if you can’t sell them you have got to keep them. That’s our plan B,” he said.

Core issue now evolving relate to reforms on Maori ownership of land and foreshore, control and use of that land by incorporated board of directors vs the say of the wider iwi, Maori corporate partnerships, iwi management of natural resources. Many feel the attempted rush through of the Maori Land Court bill was aimed to aid privatisation and takeover of iwi resources by multinational partners at a later date.

These issues have being brought up in relation to iron sand mining, water ownership, forestry ownership, carbon credits, fishing stocks, deep sea drilling.

They include the question what happens to treaty deals signed with the Crown if we become a republic or relation to a post TPPA (ratified in December) world where corporations are guaranteed their right to profit.

Privatization & Partnership
– let us make you an offer you cant refuse.

4. 2013: NZ offshore ownership balance of Meridian remains unknown as many shares are now held in blind trust – (but at least 16% is foreign owned) in South-land. Ngāi Tahu Property and Meridian Energy Limited (Meridian) jointly lodge consent applications for a proposed hydro and irrigation scheme to be located between the Waiau and Hurunui Rivers in North Canterbury.

5. 2013 Meridian Energy says it’s ready for partial privatisation and expects a significant. uplift in operating earnings.. The state-owned power company’s accounts also show a strong positive bounce in the unrealised value of its contracts to service the Bluff aluminium smelter, where the majority owner Rio Tinto is pressing to renegotiate a new long term contract.

THE GREEN-WASH BEGINS.

6. 2016 Doc Kakapo recovery partnership wih Meridian and Ngai Tahu was announced at Meridian’s Manapōuri hydro station, located in Fiordland National Park, as part of a kākāpō chick release on Pukenui/Anchor Island.

9. Sept 2017 Meridian About a month later this author was told by told by Waiau farmer how a Meridan executive told him “sell up or be flooded out”. It came as I learned Meridian was buying up dairy farms and leasing them back. The farmer who does not wish to be named stated the area below Manapouri, where Meridian built and extension in the ‘wrong’ spot (assisting the flooding process) runs to the sea via Tuatapere is now dominated predominantly by dairy farmers who sold their land (and now have leases from Meridian).

11. 2017 Ngai Tahu, Meridian, and the Department of Conservation patrons of Pest Free NZ become sponsors of Southand’s Kākāpō (one of New Zealand’s most endangered species) who have “joined forces to support the Kākāpō Recovery Programme, which aims to bring back Kākāpō to their former natural range and restore the heartbeat of the land”. A move welcomed by environment and bird lover nationwide.The project is subject to nationwide coverage by press and extensive TV adverts.

12 . 2017 DOC reply to an 1080 activist’s OIA on the VIP trip to Fiordland alps and Kākāpō Recovery Programme stating; “In response to your request I am able to advise that the purpose of the charter flights on 14 March 2018 was to show The Nature Conservancy’s Asia Pacific Council conservation work that is underway in Fiordland, specifically work to recover kākāpō and takahē”.

The Nature Conservancy (TNC) promotes itself as a charitable environmental organisation, pursuing solutions to conservation challenges, and working with partners including indigenous communities, businesses, governments, multilateral institutions, and other non-profits.

It states;

“Environmental sustainability continues to be a focus across both the public and private sectors. In February 2014, the Goldman Sachs Environmental Finance Innovation Summit
brought together companies, investors, development banks,NGOs, policymakers and key thought leaders to discuss market-based approaches to the environment. A particular focus of the Summit included GREEN BONDS to fund new projects, green banks to finance clean energy technologies and public/private partnerships to address critical water infrastructure and other needs around the world”.

The report declares that Goldman Sachs has been an innovator in the green bond market, “a market that saw nearly $39 billion in new issues last year, more than twice the volume in 2013, according to Bloomberg”.

13. April 2104: Lou Sanson, Director-General DOC reports on his private blog that in March DOC hosted The Nature Conservancy Board in Auckland and Fiordland last month. That Conservation Minister (Greens) Eugene Sage opened the symposium, which covered NZ international innovation in marine and freshwater management, and natural capital funding models. They are essentially a science-based organisation focused on five critical international priorities:

tackle climate change
protect land and water
provide food and water sustainability
build healthy cities
connect people and nature

TNC is financially sponsored by numerous corporations including Goldmansach Coca Cola and Nestles.

WHO DO THE WATER GIANTS WORK FOR?
THE WATER POLLUTERS FUNNILY ENOUGH.

Meanwhile as firms like Coke and Nestle (where our money trail just about ends..but not quite) speak ‘pure water, save the whales, save the birds’ they continue to pump out billions of tonnes of plastic into our ocean killing both birds and marine life on a genocidal scale. Of course plastic pollution (make sure you put your plastic water bottles in recyclable bags) only continues to adds to the scarcity and value of clean water — especially the pure water drawn from glacier ice which sits above the tree and spray line.

14. Nestle and Coke use a variety products produced by Monsanto (to the point some would argue Monsanto virtually own both companies) whose global patents include genetically modified food, fluoride, and most of the nearly 3 million kg in pesticides and agricultural toxins that are dropped in NZ each year. A figure which makes the 3000 kg of 1080 (1998 Forrest & Soil) pale in comparison.

Products dropped in a country whose cancer rates four decades ago were one in eight and which today border on one in two.

But of course while the precise damage done to humans and wildlife by 1080 remains a controversy (were only time will eventually declare who was right) the association of 1080 as a good thing for the environment sponsored by firms assisting the process of water monopolisation is helping cloud public perception. A firm merged with Green Party leader James Shaw old company where he worked as public relation consultant paid to make a company, whose buddies literally were Nazis, look good.

Meanwhile the dangers is not just 1080 but a range of pesticides and environmental toxins which pet ‘science’ (on the pay of profit making organisation or environmental/state related agencies who have formed financially rewarding partnership) misdirect fact, polarize public opinion, and shape public relations so as to pool our ignorance regarding whats good for the environment and whats good for corporate profits.

  3. All this comes as no surprise! It comes down to the simple fact that we have been lied to for as long as we have been on this planet. I say this one more time (I said that before) Crude Oil is, Coal is, Water is, All the 3 (and more) are part of the systems to keep this planet in check, so to speak. I’ll explain; Water can not be made by “Man”, Crude Oil can not be made by “Man”, Coal can not be made by “Man”. So all 3 can not be created and can not be destroyed, they are. It’s a bit like energy. So there is a abundance of all of this, let nobody tell you otherwise. They are pulling the proverbial wool. Please wake-up people, the hour is getting late. Yes I know, I did not mention gold, for obvious reasons. Have a lovely day, what’s left of it!
