Environment Canterbury coordinates river engineering work in the Waitaki River downstream of the Waitaki dam on behalf of the Lower Waitaki Rating District (Canterbury and Otago ratepayers).
The objective of this work is to control unwanted vegetation growth in the central part of the riverbed and encourage vegetation growth on the on the river berms/margins.
