Mineral Springs

Mineral Springs.

New Zealand is famed for its health-restoring and curative mineral and thermal springs. The law makes provision for their proper use and management.

Lands containing springs of this nature are usually reserved to and controlled by the Government. But power is taken in the Land Act to grant leases for sixty-three years of not more than 7 acres of land containing or adjacent to such springs, subject to conditions securing page 30 the public convenience. Land in the vicinity of mineral or thermal springs may also be leased in such areas as may be considered desirable.

Regulations for the conservation and use of these valuable springs, fixing the fees that may be charged for their use, providing for the maintenance of decency and order, and for the comfort and convenience of visitors, arc strictly enforced by the Government.

Samuel Costall, Acting Government Printer, Wellington.
