"Service providers are urged to 'get accredited' as part of implementation of the national regulation for water measuring and reporting. Irrigation NZ strongly supports the national regulation requiring water takes to be measured as part of a wider programme to improve fresh water management"

"As from November 10th, 2010, new national regulation requires the majority of permit holders to measure and report their irrigation water use. You can't manage water if you don't measure it, says IrrigationNZ chief executive Andrew Curtis"
