The diggers did great work over the last two days and it’s good to see the rock groyne now lines up with the river and has been bolstered. The rocks have been laid fairly broad and low rather than narrower and higher.
With any luck this change will reduce the erosion caused by the river in times of flood, storm and high-tide by helping it move towards the sea rather than doubling back to the dunes.
The digger driver also shaped the vehicle entrance before leaving. It should at the moment keep any driver happy for ease of use.
Horizons Regional Council have recently released their State of Environment Report 2019 and it’s an interesting read. It’s clearly written and well-designed which makes it easy to find the information you’re interested in. Waikawa Beach is specifically mentioned a couple of times.
