Improved stock-in-waterways response

Info-graphic showing positive results

Stock in our waterways has been highlighted by the community as a major area of concern.

Environment Canterbury and Fish and Game have worked together to develop a new response protocol and to set targets around stock-in-waterways complaints.

This new protocol has resulted in more complaints being responded to in person, more enforcement action and, most importantly, more stock kept out of the waterways.

The figures illustrate that we take this matter very seriously and are committed to protecting Canterbury’s waterways from the damage caused by livestock.
