Join the Pokaiwhenua Catchment Group at Hodderville Farms open field day on 14th December to discuss their detention bund project with topics including: funding options, challenges, design and construction process, water quality objectives.
We will have speakers from the Waikato River Authority to share information on the funding process, and Chris Tanner from NIWA to discuss the benefits to water quality.
This is the first in a series of events to follow the establishment of the detention bunds, from pre-construction to completion.
