    Abstract This report describes the construction and calibration of the
    ground water flow model for understanding the cumulative
    effects of using water from the shallow aquifers on the Kapiti
    Coast. It explores various abstraction scenarios to assess
    the sustainability of the aquifer in order to provide a guide to
    the effective management of this resource. The following
    suggestions are offered: creating 150m buffer zones
    around recognised wetlands and springs; controlling any
    abstractions, drainage and surface water diversions; and the
    monitoring of large groundwater takes in the Waikanae
    Groundwater Zone.
