Soil erosion control

The frequency and severity of storms are expected to increase, in turn increasing the risk of soil erosion during these events. Environment Canterbury's Soil Conservation and Revegetation programme helps landowners conserve soil in erosion-prone areas through planting, mapping and planning.

The programme also aims to reduce the amount of sediment washed into waterways and to deliver long-term environmental benefits.
