Kaituna River re-diversion opening celebrated

Kaituna River re-diversion opening celebrated

In 2013 the Western Bay of Plenty District Council began exploring design options for the Kaituna River re-diversion works. The return of freshwater flows from the Kaituna River into Te Awa o Ngātoroirangi/Maketū Estuary was celebrated this week by the local community and key stakeholders. DML was pleased to play a key role, in the project by undertaking baseline bathymetry and monitoring surveys. As the project developed part of the challenge was getting our survey jet ski in and out of the water. This is where the local crane operator provided a helping hand. Congratulations to all involved in the success of this project!
