Publication reference number:  CR 328

Ministry for the Environment, in partnership with Bay of Plenty Regional Council, commissioned a literature review to get an accessible summary of relevant research carried out in New Zealand on methods to manage sediment and their economic assessment.
The review also includes a basic explanation of the processes that lead to erosion and sedimentation. It is aimed primarily at regional councils and other parties involved in freshwater management in New Zealand.
