A pressure-state-impact model for freshwater flows with example application to Canterbury

Publication date:  April 2017
Publication reference number:  CR 261

This report outlines the development of a pressure-state-impact model to predict the effect of water abstractions on river flows, using Canterbury as a case study. The report also proposes a framework for gathering data on water take consents.

Together, this model and database could be used to produce data for environmental reporting, and as a tool to report and manage water consents around New Zealand.
