Arrow River and the Wakatipu Basin aquifers

Consultation has concluded

Tell us what you value about the Arrow River catchment

ORC is reviewing the Regional Plan: Water and wants to build on the great work your community has done in recent years to identify important values and develop objectives and limits for waterways in the Arrow River catchment area.

Your community told us you treasure the Arrow’s amenity values: the clear water, scenic surrounds and recreational opportunities. You also identified the need for a reliable, good quality supply of water for community and irrigation use, which when taken, does not degrade the river’s natural values.

We want to check that these values still reflect what is important to you, and if you have any other values you want to contribute.

It’s important that as many people as possible take part in the discussion about water in your area so that decisions about the Arrow River and the Wakatipu Basin aquifers reflect the needs of the whole community.

We want you to be involved. Click on the link below the map of the catchment to have your say.
