Speaker Series: Groundwater Licensing – The process and benefits

If you are a groundwater user, licensing clarifies how much water you can legally use, and increases the security of your access to that water. Licensing establishes rights to groundwater based on the same priority scheme that currently exists for surface water, and will help to reduce conflicts between water users in times of scarcity.

Join in this talk with Andrew Petersen, a Water Management Specialist for the Ministry of Agriculture – Food & Fisheries, and learn the steps you can take to get registered.
