A Southland farmer has been sentenced to community work for discharging dairy farm effluent to land.

Damon Shane Buckingham appeared before Judge Craig Thompson in the Environment Court in Invercargill yesterday after admitting discharging the effluent to land in circumstances where it may have entered a waterway.

He was sentenced to 40 hours of community work.

The court was told two monitoring officers visited a property near the Waituna Lagoon in May to carry out an effluent discharge inspection.

They found significant ponding around the effluent discharge system.
