Investigating the drop in the Wairau aquifer involves overlapping issues of hydrology, run-off and river management, so Marlborough District Council staff have joined forces with specialists from Lincoln University and the University of Dresden in Germany for this research.
The University of Dresden scientists are specialists in the interaction between aquifers, rivers and springs. Their involvement in this project is partly funded by the German Government as well as Marlborough District Council. They are working closely with researchers at Lincoln Agritech in Canterbury.
