    My memory is simple and I'm sure shared by everyone. The Hutt River - I'm thinking Upper Hutt specifically as I spent a lot of years living near and crossing the river at Totara Park - used to have water in it. We never had to hear of algal blooms. For a long time now it's been barely more than a trickle and that simply can't be healthy on any level. I'm amazed and gutted any time I hear of yet more water being taken. It's so obviously unsustainable, doubly so as the weather gets crazier and we are likely to have extended spells of hotter drier weather.
