This page has the key milestones in the making of the National Water Conservation (Rakaia River) Amendment Order 2011 and the amendment application.
- On 23 March 2011, the Ashburton District Council applied for a variation to the National Water Conservation (Rakaia River) Order 1988. The application was made to the Minister for the Environment under section 58 of the Environment Canterbury (Temporary Commissioners and Improved Water Management) Act 2010.
- The Minister decided that because of the minor effect of the amendment it was unnecessary for Canterbury Regional Council to consider the application and the applicant had the agreement of the successors to the original applicant for the Order (Fish and Game Councils) and the regional council.
- The National Water Conservation (Rakaia River) Amendment Order 2011 was approved and gazetted in August 2011.
