Submission on Environment Court Hearing on jetboating the Hawea River


In May 2003, Glenn Murdoch compiled the NZRCA submission opposing the NZ Jet Boating Association, NZJBA application for up to 6 days a year for jetboating on the Hawea River. In August 2003, the environment court decision granted jet boating for up to 6 days per year, but with some conditions: the NZJBA has to administer the trip, written approval from COW that none of its members are using the river for any activities, two months written notice to the Harbour Master and the Harbour Master is satisfied that none of the other organisations that use the river are using it that day, and public notification in the Otago Daily Times and Southland Times.
