The Ashburton Zone Committee meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month.
Read past agendas and minutes
Come along to the Ashburton Zone Committee Meeting on the 25th October to hear how the MAR trial is going and what we have learnt so far.
The MAR trial was commissioned earlier this year. It is an innovative community-led solution to try replenish groundwater levels in the Hinds area, restore flow to coastal drains and improve water quality in the underlying shallow aquifer.
The trial involves directing surface water into a pond which infiltrates down into the aquifer and follows the direction of groundwater flow toward the coast.
The operation of the trial is overseen by the MAR Pilot Working Group. Members of this group will be at the 25 October zone committee meeting to share the latest monitoring data.
