The country’s Environment Minister said a water conservation order is the most effective way of ensuring the outstanding fishing, recreational and scenic characteristics of the river are not compromised, and are available to future generations.

The order, which comes into force 17 December 2004, states that no water permits may be granted to dam the waters specified in the order or to other waters in the Mohaka river system affecting those waters.
