Suspended sediment time trends in the Waipa River and Waitomo Stream
Report: TR 2012/33
Author: J Hoyle (NIWA)
Waikato Regional Council commissioned NIWA to assess the Waipa River at Otewa dataset for evidence of a trend or change in sediment yields that can be related to catchment and bank recovery works.
It then became apparent that there are also concerns regarding trends in sediment yields in the Waitomo catchment, so an assessment of trends in the Waitomo catchment was added to the scope of this study.
