Resource consents issued by Gisborne District Council to take water from a river have conditions that define where and when water may be taken.

The information below indicates whether you may take water from a river according to your consent conditions. For information read water level low flows

*The take status is calculated based on data recorded for the previous day. Sites that are affected by tide use minimum recorded flow. Sites not affected by tide use the median recorded flow

'Take Status' of a river is recalculated each night and will be valid for approximately 24 hours, or until the web page is updated again.  The model is updated after midnight each night. See the Model Updated date and time to see the exact time it was last updated.**
