FLOOD CONTROL

MANAWATU RIVER SCHEME

INITIAL COST OP £278,000

O.C. . PALMERSTON N., this day.

The Manawatu Catchment Board approved a comprehensive flood control scheme for the Manawatu River from the Manawatu Gorge to the sea, the first stage of which involves an estimated expenditure of £278,000, of which the board will find £46,000 by raising a loan, the remainder being a subsidy from the Soil Conservation Council.

The whole scheme is divided into three stages and is to be carried out within five years. The first stage shortens the river course by 13 miles, using the latest imported excavators to cut a new channel.

The board also decided to take over the two river boards which have been functioning in the area concerned in the first stage of the scheme.
