Has anyone look at Chapter 8 (beds and margins of lakes and rivers) of the NRRP for Canterbury.

Should we be making any submissions on this chapter especially as people are discussing affecting river bed features such as Rock 'A' up north which may happen sometime in Canterbury. What you reckon Ian?
Also I am thinking about concerns about making rock weirs using rocks obtain from beds i.e. Rangitata, thus removing the large rocks which we require for making river runs interesting.
Also I am thinking about fencing around rivers and my concerns about fences in rivers and fences which have fallen into rivers. As a group of us had a not so nice experience with some fencing in the Boyle not long ago.
Hopefully I can time to check
Haven't read the chapter yet myself as I have just remembered about it now. Hopefully I can read during lunch tomorrow.
However you can get a pdf copy of the Chapter at the following url with a copy of a submission form
