Our Fish and Flow portal displays the information that we have on permits to take water (including deemed permits/mining privileges), freshwater fish values, river flow information, and water races on or near properties in Otago.

If you need to replace a deemed permit (mining privilege) with a water permit before it expires in 2021, this portal may help you identify some of the things you need to consider and include in your water permit application. It can help you work out what, or who could be affected by the water you take. We recommend you read the user manual (below) first.

Please be aware that the portal only displays information that Otago Regional Council has. Iwi and other organisations such as DOC or Fish and Game may also have useful information that could assist with your application.

THE FISH AND FLOW PORTAL HAS BEEN TAKEN OFFLINE FOR MAINTENANCE.
