Since its formation in February 2011 the Upper Waitaki Zone Committee has been meeting each month to bring itself up-to-speed on water issues in the zone.
The committee's main responsibility is to develop a Zone Implementation Programme (ZIP) for water management to achieve the principles, targets and goals set out in the CWMS in the zone.
In November 2011 the committee engaged with stakeholders and community members about the priorities for water management that feed in to the ZIP.
The committee finalised its draft ZIP at its February 2012 meeting and copies of it were made available for community feedback via public meetings and on-line submissions.
The final ZIP was presented to councils in June 2012 and endorsed as the basis for the design and realignment of council work and planning programmes for freshwater.
Now the committee’s Zone Implementation Programme (ZIP) for water management has been finalised and endorsed by councils, it is focussed on implementing its on-the-ground activities, and particularly, sub-regional planning processes for the zone.
The sub-regional chapter will supersede the default water quality limits in Environment Canterbury’s proposed Land and Water Regional Plan (LWRP) for the Upper Waitaki.
The committee is now particularly focussed on developing the outcomes outlined in the ZIP to inform decisions for water quality limits in the zone, and developing a schedule for community engagement around water quality limits.
