Expressions of interest - river catchment condition surveying

Council is inviting expressions of interest from suitably qualified suppliers to provide catchment condition surveys. The work will take place under the Catchment Care and Pelorus/Te Hoiere catchment management projects, and offers the opportunity to help make a significant difference to water quality in Marlborough.

The work is seasonal and will take place over a number of years. It involves field mapping streams, fences and sources of water quality issues in rural areas. To enable rapid coverage of areas, contractors will need a group of up to four staff available to work on an area at once. Approximately 40 to 60 days’ work is expected in 2020/21, with ongoing work in subsequent years.

Staff need to be physically fit, able to walk long distances and be computer literate. Experience with GIS software is desirable but full training will be provided. Working extended hours and living away from home for short periods may be required. Contractors who can provide supervision, vehicles and tablets capable of running GIS software will be at an advantage. Health and safety is a prime consideration for working in varied rural terrain, including working farms.

Expressions of interest close at 5.00 pm on Friday 30 October 2020.
