The pdf files below are the application for a water conservation order in respect of Te Waikoropupu Springs and associated water bodies. They are presented exactly as they went to the Minister for the Environment.
If you’re looking for the first time, a good place to start is with the application. It contains an introduction and executive summary for those who want simple overview in five pages. The main narrative is written in the next 25 pages. Beyond that the discussion becomes more technical. There are references to the nine appendices in the main narrative.
Special note: There are two Appendices labeled Appendix 2. The first is the Deed of Settlement between Ngati Tama ki Te Tau Ihu and the Crown, signed in 2013. The second is a Schedule of the Documents associated with the Deed of Settlement.
