This report updates previously published statistics on water consented to be taken from surface and groundwater sources for consumptive uses (such as irrigation or drinking water). The report focusses on the potential pressure on surface water flows from consumptive water takes. Stream flow pressure is characterised by accumulating water consented to be taken as percentage of median flow in all river reaches affected by consented takes in New Zealand.
Data relating to non-hydroelectric consents. It contains upstream accumulated maximum consented rates by use, source and in total. Please note that the upstream accumulated total for each nzsegment can appear in multiple rows; once for each FactorName.
This dataset was used for the "Consented freshwater takes" indicator, as part of the environmental reporting series: Our freshwater 2020. This indicator can be found at www.stats.govt.nz/indicators/consented-freshwater-...
The “Consented freshwater takes” indicator uses two datasets
