Dowsing use by staff
The request was successful.
From: Mark Honeychurch
I am interested in the use of dowsing techniques by employees and contractors used by your council when working with water, e.g. pipe leaks, water sources, etc. It has been recently found in the UK that this technique is used by local authorities:
Please release the following information:
1. If any Auckland Council staff use dowsing as part of their job
2. If any contractors employed by Auckland Council use dowsing as part of their work when engaged by the Council
3. If any dowsing companies explicitly offering dowsing services have been engaged by the Council.
4. For any of the above, what costs were incurred by the Council.
Please give me this information for as long as records are available.
If any part of my request is unclear, please don't hesitate to contact me.
As a New Zealand citizen, I am eligible to make requests under the OIA.
