APARIMA COMMUNITY ENVIRONMENT (ACE) PROJECT

Trap The Cr*p – Sediment Trap Field day

About the event​

Discussion was had about the benefits of an effective wetland or sediment trap - What is the nutrient loss mitigation possible from a well-designed system? What does a well-designed system look like and what is the difference in design for solving Phosphorus/sediment vs Nitrogen issues?

We heard from farmers who have installed wetlands/sediment traps - What is the cost and effort involved? And what is their advice to others interested in developing their own system.

Discussions by experts covered:

  • Soil mapping and understanding
  • Water and Contaminant pathways
  • Pomahaka Water Care Group
  • Catchment history, land use and catchment load.
  • Future use of nutrients, relation to soil test and nutrient recommendations.
