This dataset was first added to MfE Data Service on 20 Sep 2019.

This dataset shows land that would be covered by the option 1 of section 8.4 Immediate action to reduce nitrogen loss.

This web map has been developed by the Ministry for the Environment to support policy proposals in the Action for Healthy Waterways discussion document. The proposals are currently being consulted on.

It provides extra detail on Option 1 in section 8.4 of the discussion document (Immediate action to reduce nitrogen loss). The map indicates the pastoral catchments and sub-catchments specified as high-nitrate in Option 1, where regional rules are not already in place or proposed, and shows the land considered to be low-slope.

Low-slope is defined in this option as land parcels with an average slope of less than 5, 7 or 10 degrees. We are seeking feedback on the appropriate slope threshold to use.

The catchments are those with the highest 10% of nitrate levels in the MfE Environmental Reporting River Water Quality dataset found here. Catchments where the predominant sources of nitrate are non-pastoral in origin are excluded.

Under Option 1, a per-hectare cap, or threshold, for nitrogen losses will be set for each sub-catchment with similar soil type and rainfall. This threshold will be based on a ranking of nitrogen losses from farms within each sub-catchment, and could be set at the 90th percentile, or the 70th, or a point between. Feedback is sought on where this threshold should be set.

This is only one of the options being consulted on, The areas indicated are provisional and may not equate to areas included in regulation.

This set of data sets provides an estimation of groundwater flux. There are three components: Groundwater recharge: development of nationwide mean (daily and seasonal) groundwater recharge data sets through the combination of three pre-existing groundwater recharge models; Groundwater–surface water exchange: development of a national indicative groundwater discharge data set using an existing national groundwater flow model, as well as comparison with a pre-existing gaining/losing stream prediction data set; Groundwater flow: development of a national groundwater flow data set using an existing national groundwater flow model. For more detail on the process and methods, see Westerhoff et al. (2019). New Zealand groundwater atlas: Groundwater Fluxes. Lower Hutt (NZ): GNS Science. 60 p. Consultancy Report 2019/126.

A national groundwater model (NWT) was used to estimate the probability of groundwater discharging to the surface and separated into classes to encompass the uncertainty of the dataset.

This data set provides an update of New Zealand’s depth to hydrogeological basement map. Depth to hydrogeological basement can be loosely defined as the ‘base of aquifers’; or more strictly as ‘the depth to where primary porosity and permeability of geological material is low enough such that flued volumes and flow rates can be considered negligible’. For more detail on the process and methods, see Westerhoff et al. (2019). New Zealand groundwater atlas: depth to hydrogeological basement. Lower Hutt (NZ): GNS Science. 19 p. Consultancy Report 2019/140.

A national model was used to estimate depth to hydrogeological basement. Hydrogeological basement refers to geological material with primary porosity and permeability that is low enough such that fluid volumes and flow rates can be considered negligible.
