Through the Canterbury Water Management Strategy, the Ashburton Water Management Zone Committee have recommended evaluation of Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) as a primary catchment scale water management option for meeting their Hinds Plains water management objectives. Following three initial trial years, the Hekeao Hinds Water Enhancement Trust (HHWET) has been established by to develop a catchment-wide MAR Scheme for the Hekeao-Hinds Plains. The scheme will also incorporate additional MAR concepts such as Near River Recharge (NRR), dry wells and Targeted Stream Augmentation (TSA) where applicable. Goals for the scheme are to:
• Reduce or maintain groundwater nutrient levels to the community desired levels;
• Increase groundwater levels and storage;
• Enhance lowland stream flows and biodiversity;
• Ensure that the GRS is affordable and cost effective to the community; and
• Establish and maintain community acceptance for the GRS
Environment Canterbury (as project manager for the Hekeao Hinds Water Enhancement Trust) wish to contract MAR communications expertise to progress these goals by providing communications support as required from May 2020 to June 2022.
The purpose of this request for expression of interest (‘ROI’) is to invite interested parties to register their interest with Environment Canterbury (ECan) for the above tasks.
