Do you love the Manuherekia River? Have your say on how it will be managed in the future.

You’ve told us you want a healthy river you can swim, kayak and fish in, collect mahika kai from and that provides a reliable water source for your crops or business.

To achieve the things you value, we’ve developed five different Manuherekia River minimum flow scenarios. The scenarios each have different impacts on the values identified. The “minimum flow” is the level of river flow at which (if reached) all water being taken for uses such as irrigation must stop. A minimum flow helps to maintain environmental outcomes. The flows are described below as litres per second (l/s).

Community input on the range of scenarios will help inform the Manuherekia Rohe (area) section of ORC’s new Land and Water Regional Plan, which will notified and open for submissions from the public in 2023.

Please tell us which Manuherekia flow management scenario you prefer and why. If you wish to comment on the status quo (the purple line in the diagram below) please do so in question 2 in the survey.

Detailed information about the scenarios and water management in Manuherekia can be found in this report. We encourage you to review this document and tell us what you think by taking the survey below.
