Status: consultation has opened.
Closing date: 5pm on Sunday 6 January.
NPDC’s resource consent for taking water from Mangatete Stream is about to end, and we’re applying for a new resource consent to continue to take the same volume from the stream. We’re also assessing the stream’s ecology to find out what effects the current water-take is having.
However, we have some options to consider for Okato’s long-term future.
We could continue to take the same amount of water in future decades, or we could invest in projects that will reduce our dependency on the Mangatete Stream.
Before we make any decisions, we want to know what your priorities are. Have a look at our consultation document below, then fill in the feedback form before the 19 December deadline.
