Environment Canterbury Groundwater Publications

One of the reasons given to justify the recent imposition of ‘state of the environment water charging’ by Environment Canterbury [ECan] is that “the demand for irrigation in Canterbury and declining water quality from rural and urban land use in recent years are driving additional scientific investigations and monitoring work” [ECan website news 11 Feb. 2010].  Much of ECan’s scientific work is documented in their own technical reports, usually publicly available, but not always easy to find [notwithstanding the ‘Publications’ tab at top right of their ‘Home’ page].  ECan’s Customer Services will respond to requests.  Many of their groundwater technical reports are available as downloadable files from the web page noted below [‘source’].
