The SC Salmon Anglers Assn. has put in their submission as follows:-
(1) Opposing a water permit to abstract a further 10 cumecs when flows exceed 142.6 cumecs.
(2) Our views on a permit to construct a storage pond, to upgrade the RDR canal and to build a 460 meter long fish bypass channel.
(3) We oppose the consent "permit to discharge water and sediment from the storage pond back into the Rangitata river.
(4) Also we cannot accept a 35 year term for these consents, we believe that 35 years is too long to wait to do something about any problems subsequently identified in the plan.
We have also said that we wish to be hear at the Consent Hearing.
It is most important that we as an Association get our message across so that we are taken notice of so with that in mind we are calling for anyone who feels so passionate about the Rangitata River that they would be willing to speak about their experiences on the river.
There may also be some areas of our submission that you feel your views will help that process. You may also know of someone that is especially good at speaking to hearings and you feel we could use their help.
If you do then please please make contact with Phil de Joux on 0274 422454 or email him on firstname.lastname@example.org
