Dozers and diggers Rakaia riverbed.

Afternoon people. Was just wondering what consents etc the diggers/bulldozers have to have on the Rakaia river below the main road bridge to shift shingle or divert streams etc for ( irrigation?) or whatever purpose.
You can see them out there at the moment in the riverbed doing there thing down by the pylons.
Is there a site at ECAN you can question or ask?
The main stream is over to the left. Can you divert it a significant amount or are there limitations of some description.
Thereís bugger all water in it at the moment without perhaps someone diverting even more out.

Done some work there a few years ago exposing the bridge piles and back filling with rock,they might be doing the piles that were not done.Went on to rip the islands so they would open up with the next flood and not change water channel direction to the stopbanks.

You should come to Hawkes Bay and see the root raking on our rivers. No trout holding waters for miles just a sluice run. The root raking was ostensibly done to save valuable vineyards which are now practically all pulled out and replaced by apples.The difficult issues about over water allocation and billionaire dreams are chhalenges for the HBRC staff including the drongo HBRC planner witness who had to confess under xexam by a very competent Forest and Bird lawyer[Ms Gepp] his evidence was completely at odds with the Regional Plan. FITH.

Forest and Bird seems to me the only organisation that is holding Ecan to account in Canterbury in the continued destruction to our rivers.

It's not looking good with the Canterbury rivers so low at this time of year.

There's not a lot of snow left up the back to do any real good.......

I was at the top of the lagoon Saturday morning. A group of 5 boats were doing a river run. They struggled to find a decent lead up the river at all with one running aground only half a K up river. Itís not looking good. 85cumecs at the gorge , half of thatís sucked out before it hits the lagoon. Need a good flood.

I was told a couple of yrs ago they were going to move the river away from the south bank below bridge to mouth (farmers land taken) and they still have to protect the pylons.
Mind you it takes yrs to get anything done on the rivers.They better hurry up,the odd salmon sneeks up the Rakaia in November,December too. Wink
  

Shot a few deer,caugth some big trout and salmon
