ECAN has announced a public meeting regarding “Hurunui Catchment rivers and groundwater planning” to be held at the Culverden Community Centre, 7:30pm, Monday 9 February. The aim of the meeting is to:
Hear/discuss a presentation about what we [ECAN] know about the hydrology of the Hurunui River and the flow requirements of instream uses and values;
Hear/discuss about the hydrology of the groundwater system;
Establish a Community Advisory Group that is representative of stakeholder groups with an interest in these matters to liaise with Environment Canterbury staff and to make recommendations to ECAN.
The CAG will meet fortnightly. This meeting is an important opportunity to ensure kayakers’ flow preferences are recognised, and have kayaker representation on the Advisory Group.
