Upgrade and Installation of ORC Flow Management Structures at Robson Lagoon, Lower Clutha, Balclutha

Otago Regional Council

This project will upgrade flow control structures for Robson Lagoon, located northeast of Balclutha. Infrastructure will be upgraded to assist with flood management around the Robson Lagoon area, whilst protecting its natural and cultural values. 

The regionally significant Lake Tuakitoto Wetland complex, which includes Robson Lagoon, is located in the Clutha-Mata-Au catchment, approximately 7km east/northeast of Balclutha, Otago. The upgraded flow management structures will improve flow during flood events and provide a more sustainable habitat for local wildlife, such as native fish.

Lake Tuakitoto Wetland complex is a part of catchment serviced by the Lower Clutha Flood Protection and Drainage Scheme.

Cost: $0.5 million
