Is the NZRCA aware of a threat to the Parapara in Golden Bay? It was reported in the Nelson Mail that there is a proposed hydro scheme that could jeopordise kayaking on the river. I cannot find the article on the web, but have a link to some information on it here:

The Parapara is listed in Graham Charles' book and is one of the view easily accessible higher grade runs in Golden Bay/Nelson.
