Case study 1 – Nutrient Load Reductions to Achieve Freshwater Objectives in the Rivers, Lakes and Estuaries of Southland

This report quantifies nitrogen and phosphorus load reductions predicted to achieve options for freshwater objectives  in rivers, lakes and estuaries of Southland.

This report describes nutrient (nitrogen and phosphorus) load reductions predicted to achieve options for freshwater objectives (FWO) in rivers, lakes and estuaries in Southland. The analysis does not consider how the nutrient load reductions would be achieved and only aims to inform the Southland Regional Council about the magnitude of the load reductions needed for each option, how these vary across the region, and the uncertainty inherent in this assessment.
