Do you need to apply for a water take consent?

Farms milking more than 220 cows are likely to need to apply for a Regional Council Resource Consent for dairy shed washdown and milk cooling water (“Variation 6”).  For most farms, applying will simply be a matter of formalising your entitlements.  However, if you have intensified or converted after 15 October 2008, the application process will be more involved and may require specialist advice.
