Wellington Regional Erosion Control Initiative

Updated 21 September 2017 11:07am

The Wellington Regional Erosion Control Initiative (WRECI) started in 2009 in conjunction with the Ministry for Agriculture and Forestry (now Ministry for Primary Industries) to target the erosion prone areas in the Wairarapa considered the most in need of treatment.  These were chosen based on the rates of sediment discharge and percentage of erosion prone land in the catchment.

From 1 July 2015 the programme changed to target high priority Land Use Capability (LUC) classifications over the whole region.  For information on what areas of your property qualify for WRECI funding please contact your Land Management Advisor.

For further information email Josie Winters on call 06 826 1569 or the Land Management Advisor for your area.
