Lake Tuakitoto restoration

Consultation has concluded

Have your say on projects for Lake Tuakitoto

We’ve worked alongside the community to identify projects that will help to achieve the community’s vision for Lake Tuakitoto in South Otago. It would be great if we can achieve all these projects, but we need a starting point.

We want your help to prioritise them by voting on which ones are most important to you, and you are welcome to vote on more than one project.

In the "Projects" tab below you will see three sections - ORC-led projects, Projects to develop with others, and New ideas (where you can add ideas that aren't already listed).

In the "Places" tab you can see a visual representation of some of the project ideas. You can also add new ideas that are location specific, however please note these cannot be voted on, so we will not be able to assess their priority.

Here are the four goals for Lake Tuakitoto that were identified during workshops with the community. Please keep these in mind when casting your vote.

  1. Lake level management
  2. Silt control
  3. Access and walking track improvement
  4. Improvement of the area's biodiversity

Voting closes on 30 September. After this we will assess the results and bring them back to the community.

Thanks for having your say!

  • For silt control, can we work with other organisations to investigate two-stage ditches. I'd suggest work with Fish & Game, DoC, iwi and catchments Otago to trial these in this catchment. Information on their effectiveness, construction and maintenance would be very valuable for many areas throughout Otago and this would be an ideal trial site especially considering the nature of the water quality problem in the catchment. Thanks, Craig NZ Landcare Trust
