Nelson City Council (Council) has recently commissioned WRIGGLE Limited to provide an estuary vulnerability assessment for the four largest estuaries in the Nelson region (Waimea Inlet, Nelson Haven, Delaware Inlet and Kokorua Inlet).
From this assessment, monitoring indicators and approaches have been defined for each estuary along with a long term monitoring and reporting schedule.
Council is requesting proposals from contractors to undertake the monitoring and reporting on the state (condition) of Nelson’s estuaries over the next ten years and to update the ecological vulnerability assessment in 2027.
The objectives of estuary monitoring programme are:
(a) track long-term changes in estuary condition and guide appropriate management in relation to these key issues in a staged, cost effective and defensible manner
(b) assess changes in the condition of the estuary over time, to ensure the community and ecological values of our estuaries are maintained or enhanced, and
(c) to contribute to a national monitoring and reporting programme.
