Help us in the fight to "SAVE THE RANGITATA RIVER"

  • Update number 2     15 February 2019
    Posted by: South Canterbury Salmon Anglers Association

    We have attended the mediation process to date and Anglers and RDRML have come to a settlement in respect of most of the appealed consents which should be signed off and registered with the court shortly. However this still leaves the 10cumec take by RDRMLtd. We have carried out one study of the river with Professor Brasington and now to enable us to carry on further with our appeal (Environment Court) another study is needed to get a baseline Sediment Study. Once again this comes at a cost and that cost will be $10,000 for the helicopter carrying a Lidar machine to carry out this study along with other river bed and gravel data and Professor Brasington's (Waikato University) time and analysis of the baseline data. We call again for your help with donations to help us fund this Appeal.

  • Outcome To Date     17 January 2019
    Posted by: South Canterbury Salmon Anglers Association

    With regard to the outcome of "Fish Screens" from the first part of the hearing/mediation we as anglers will now be involved with the testing regime and also become part of the fish bypass group.

    The 10 cumec take however is still on the table with the hearing/mediation to take place in February.

    We should all feel very proud that we took the stance and have stood up for the river and the salmon fishery.

    WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP WITH THIS COSTLY PROCESS!!!!!!!!!
