Some projects we have been involved with :

In 1992 Envirolink developed a network of weather stations in the Tasman District.

Most of these stations are located in horticultural areas and continuously measure and record climatic factors critical for managing crop spraying programmes.

Other stations have been established for forest owners to assist fire risk management.

With the introduction of the ‘Measuring and Reporting Water Takes’ standards (MfE, 2010) water metering of takes is now almost mandatory, with many councils further requiring data logging and telemetry.

We hold accredited service provider status under Irrigation NZ requirements for flow measuring and reporting of irrigation takes, and have formed an alliance with

Currently operate to ISO 1100-1 and ISO 1100-2 for operation of gauging stations and flow measurement in open channels, and ISO 748 for gaugings using current meters.

Currently there is no prescriptive standard for rainfall measurement other than the old met standards pertaining to orifice height and exposure.

We provide a full resource consent application service in the areas of water permits and land use consents. This includes the full assessment of effects, preparation of application and submitting to the local council.

We have worked with a number of West Coast coalfield investigations and developments over the past 15 years.

We have been involved at all stages of the investigation, resource consent application and ongoing monitoring of conditions associated with the various mining projects.

Envirolink has assisted many pastoral and horticultural irrigators with their water availability assessments and resource consent applications.

With the deregulation of the electricity generation and supply industry, increasing interest has evolved in small hydro generation potential, involving a number of rivers and streams in New Zealand.

New Zealand's freshwater fishery has long been recognised as a valuable contributor to tourism and recreational industries.

Many water-based proposals involve the abstraction of water from streams or rivers, which can often lead to a reduction in habitat for some fish species.

Forest companies are required to maintain certain environmental targets with regard to forest management practices.

This relates to meeting both their own industry standards and methods of best practice, as well as local resource management planning objectives.

For a number of years we have been associated with Fonterra Cooperative carrying out monitoring of their factories waste water to surrounding farms.

This has involved quarterly sampling of indicator sites on designated streams and wells, as well as recording visual observations of stream health.

Storage of water for irrigation and other purposes is becoming increasingly important. It is important to know as accurately as possible the amount of water that can be stored or is available at various levels within the dam. Over time dam volumes can reduce through sediment buildup and for other reasons.

A local salmon rearing and tourism venture park required an assessment of the effects of its proposal on the local river environment.

Envirolink, in association with other specialists was able to assess and provide the necessary information to successfully obtain the necessary resource consents.
