River liaison committees
River Liaison Committees
Environment Southland has established seven River Liaison Committees comprised of representatives evenly spread throughout each river catchment and elected annually by their communities.
Their role is to advise and assist Council in the development of annual maintenance works programmes and budgets, and provide an important local contact for each river community regarding special river and land drainage management issues.
For River Liaison Committee assistance on river or land drainage issues, contact the committee chairman for your catchment.
