This report documents the methodology and results of piezometric surveys undertaken in the Waimea Plains area during 2002. The aim of these investigations was to provide more complete information on bore locations, groundwater usage and piezometric levels in the northern Southland area that could be utilised for groundwater resource management. This work is a component of the wider groundwater monitoring and investigation programs established by Environment Southland in early 2000. The piezometric survey was undertaken in two parts. During February 2002 approximately 140 sites were surveyed in the area extending from Balfour to Mossburn. During November 2002 coverage of the survey was extended to include a further 160 sites in the Balfour/Riversdale/Wendonside area. At the completion of the November 2002 the number of bores, wells and springs recorded on the Waimea Plains had increased to approximately 460. Results of the two surveys are combined to produce a single piezometric contour map of the Waimea Plains for this report. The seasonal water table variation of between 1-3 metres across the study area between the two surveys was considered unlikely to have a significant effect on piezometric contours when viewed at a regional scale. ... - Intro.
