New Zealand river

River Practitioners Workshop

26 - 27 June 2019
Palmerston North

Welcome

New Zealand river managers and engineers are tasked with working in some of the most dynamic river systems in the world. Sudden and rapid changes in these channels can render control and modification structures redundant, threaten their integrity, or undo months of river control work.

In this workshop we will introduce the key processes driving river behaviour in New Zealand. Our premise is that understanding these processes is key to working with them, rather than against them. In turn, working with the dynamics of the river is critical for effective and sustainable river management, to reduce the risks of failure and loss of infrastructure and capital, and even improve the aesthetics and habitat of managed river reaches.

We invite participants to discuss particular issues and sites that they may be working with currently or expect to engage with in the future, to connect our theory with your practice. Problem-cases in particular are welcome to discuss in a BYO case study session.
