About this report

This report was commissioned by the Technical Leaders Group for the Healthy Rivers Wai Ora Project Report No. HR/TLG/2015-2016/4.1

The purpose of this report is to describe outputs from a predictive-modelling approach that aimed to identify the economic implications of altering land and point-source management to achieve the water-quality limits proposed for each of these scenarios. The modelling approach used sought to predict the economic implications of these scenarios at the farm, catchment, regional, and national scales.
