Flows and Levels

Marlborough District Council maintains a network of river flow monitoring sites, with data transferred electronically to Council's Blenheim office. While every effort is made to keep data up-to-date and correct, this is sometimes not possible due to technical issues.


Caution should be exercised if using data for decisions that may concern public safety, or the conduct of business that involves monetary or operational consequences.

Irrigation Status

Resource consent holders - if you have a resource consent to take water for irrigation you should check the conditions on your resource consent and ensure that you comply with all relevant conditions.
