This dataset was first added to MfE Data Service on 23 Dec 2013.

The New Zealand River Environment Classification (REC) organises information about the physical characteristics of New Zealand's rivers. Individual river sections are mapped according to physical factors such as climate, source of flow for the river water, topography, and geology, and catchment land cover eg, forest, pasture or urban. Sections of river that have similar ecological characteristics can then be grouped together, no matter where they are.

This information is mapped for New Zealand's entire river network - over 425,000 kilometres of river. Different types of rivers respond differently to the pressures placed on them - the REC can be used to highlight the most appropriate management tools and approaches to reduce these pressures for each river type. Information from the classification is used to develop policy, assess the environment, and report on the quality of river water.

Stream order is the numerical position of a tributary or section of a river within the entire network. Headwater streams are assigned a stream order of 1. When two tributaries of the same stream order meet, the order increments by one for the next section downstream. However, if two sections meet where one section has higher order than the other, the next section downstream has the same order as the highest upstream section.

The Land Use Map is composed of New Zealand-wide land use classifications (12) nominally at 1 January 1990, 1 January 2008, 31 December 2012 and 31 December 2016 (known as "1990", "2008", "2012" and "2016"). These date boundaries were dictated by the First and Second Commitment Periods of the Kyoto Protocol. The layer can therefore be used to create either a 1990, 2008, 2012 or 2016 land use map depending on what field is symbolised.

This dataset reports modelled mean annual suspended sediment load reduction required to meet suspended sediment attribute bottom lines in the NPS-FM 2020. Results are reported for the REC 2 river reach scale as well as at the “catchment pourpoint average” scale. The dataset includes masks for the DoC estate as well as glacial mountain source of flow.

During policy development, the Ministry for the Environment tested suspended sediment load reductions required to meet various potential attribute bottom lines. The information from February 2020 reflects the bottom lines in the NPS-FM 2020. For further information on this specific dataset, see “Hicks and Shankar 2020. Contract 23184 Task: Sediment load reductions to meet visual clarity bottom lines”. This report is available on the Ministry for the Environment’s publications website where it is listed as Technical Report 6.

For further information on the modelling, see Hicks et al. (2019) Sediment load reductions to meet suspended and deposited sediment thresholds. NIWA Client Report No. 2019100CH. Prepared for the Ministry for the Environment. This report is available here: www.mfe.govt.nz/publications/fresh-water/sediment-....

Note that the river segment and pour point catchment results provided in the 2019 dataset form the basis for the erosion and economic modelling assessment of proposed sediment attributes as reported in Neverman et al. (2019). Impact testing of a proposed suspended sediment attribute: identifying erosion and sediment control mitigations to meet proposed sediment attribute bottom lines and the costs and benefits of those mitigations.

This dataset provides boundaries for catchments that drain to the sea (i.e. sea draining catchments).

It is extracted from the Freshwater Ecosystems of New Zealand (FENZ) v1.0 geodatabase. Ministry for the Environment hosts this copy of this layer for convenience and visibility. For all inquiries please contact Department of Conservation directly.

FENZ requires specialist GIS knowledge for its technical operation and biodiversity knowledge for understanding the content. Because of FENZ’s complexity, DOC is providing advice, briefings and training (where possible) to ensure users understand its strengths, limitations and appropriate applications.

If you would like more information about FENZ or access to any FENZ data sets, email fenz@doc.govt.nz.

Variables:

Catch_id - This is a unique identifier that can be used to link to other datasets in the FENZ database, or datasets from other sources that also use a FENZ id.

Catchment names:

Currently a definitive catchment names dataset does not exist. However for your convenience, an unofficial list has been provided in the attachments ("fenz_catnames.csv") which can be joined to the catchment boundaries to provide names. Feedback on the accuracy or completeness of these names is welcomed.

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 was used to estimate near-surface groundwater flow amplitudes and separated into four classes to encompass the uncertainty of the dataset.
