Reefton Powerhouse Trust
The Reefton Powerhouse Trust is seeking to rebuild and re-consent New Zealand’s oldest hydro-electric power station on the Inangahua River at Reefton. Freshwater Solutions has been assisting the Reefton Powerhouse Trust with this exciting project and has recently finalised the AEE for the water take and use. Freshwater Solutions partnered with Jowett Consulting Ltd to assess the in-stream habitat effects associated with the proposed diversion. Other assessment work included surveying anglers on the values of the fishery and assessing fish screen options.
