Revised Hurunui WCO application submitted

Whitewater NZ and Fish & Game have submitted a revised application for a Water Conservation Order on the Hurunui River. The revised application (PDF, 2.8MB) was a necessary step following the introduction of the draconian ECAN Act that retrospectively halted the progress of the previous WCO application (after the Tribunal recommended that a WCO be granted). Kayakers who submitted on the previous WCO application are eligible to submit in support of the revised the WCO application. Submissions must be received by ECAN before 5pm 24 September 2010.
