We Want Your Local Knowledge

People gathered around to talk about water issues.

Personal memories and observations about the Wairau River and aquifer can add valuable information to go alongside the scientific data being gathered.

The Marlborough District Council research team is keen to hear from water users and well owners who would like to share their local knowledge.

What changes have you noticed in the level of your well? Have springs on your land dried up unexpectedly? Do you have a theory about what might be happening to the aquifer or the Wairau River?

We are interested in any observations you would like to share about the Wairau River and aquifer.
