This dataset was first added to MfE Data Service on 03 Jun 2019.

  • AccumulatedFrame dataset to accompany National water allocation statistics for environmental reporting; 2018 report.

www.mfe.govt.nz/publications/fresh-water/national-...

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-...

  • This indicator helps us to understand where water is consented to be taken from, how much is allocated to be taken, and what it is used for. We report on the maximum volume that can be taken annually, and the maximum rate of take by primary use, primary source, and region for consents that involve consumptive water takes.
  • Our analysis and results have not included consents for hydroelectricity generation or non-consumptive water use. We also present the modelled potential impact of consented consumptive freshwater takes (excluding hydropower consents) on natural river flow across New Zealand.
  • More information on this dataset and how it relates to our environmental reporting indicators and topics can be found in the attached data quality pdf.

The “Consented freshwater takes” indicator uses two datasets
