Keeping the air clear
Ensuring the air we breathe is clean, helps supports both our health and the environment’s health. Waimate now has a ‘clean air zone’ which means rules are in place to help reduce the amount of pollutants going into the air.
These rules include encouraging people to switch to low or ultra-low emissions burners so they emit less smoke, and ensuring farmers have smoke management plans in place.
