Irrigation in Gisborne District: Application of the River Values Assessment System (RiVAS)
The River Values Assessment System (RiVAS) was applied to the irrigation value in Gisborne District. An expert panel used the system to rank rivers from high to low in terms of their relative potential for providing water for irrigation. Eight river sections were analysed and of these one, the Waipaoa, was considered of regional significance with the rest being of local significance.
