Carolyn Press- McKenzie from Huha said hundreds of fairy prions and broadbill prions were washed up on beaches. About 1200 sur- vivors were taken to Kapiti SPCA and div- ided among various animal groups. Huha took 300 and teams of its supporters worked around the clock to tube feed them a slurry of salmon and saline. About 80 birds died from exhaustion, 200 were released at Kapiti over the week- end and the remaining 14 are still at Huha. Mrs Press-McKen- zie said the birds looked like little penguins with big wings and were very beautiful''. The birds needed to be re-energised and released as soon as possible so they could have their feet back in seawater, she said. Conditions put on water take An application by Greater Wellington Water to vary its resource consent for taking water from the Hutt River, was granted by a panel of indepen- dent commissioners last week subject to a range of conditions. The consent decision allows GWW to reduce the minimum permitted flow in the Hutt River over the Kaitoke Weir for a period of three years, while the Macaskill Lakes at Te Marua are seismically strengthened. This reduction to the low flow could be required in dry summers to maintain water supply to Upper Hutt, Hutt, Wellington and Porirua cities. Under current consent con- ditions GWW must cease taking water when the flow over the Kaitoke Weir drops to 600 litres per second. The consent variation allows a further 200 litres per second of water to be taken until the flow over the weir drops to 400 litres per second. The panel concluded that the reduction in flow would assist GWW to provide a secure water supply during the planned upgrade of the lakes. Upgrading the lakes would strengthen the resilience of the storage lakes in seismic events and increase their water storage capacity. This would provide for a more reliable long-term supply of water to the people and com- munities of the Hutt Valley, Wellington and Porirua. These are positive benefits of the proposal and they will con- tribute to enabling people and communities to provide for their social, economic and cultural wellbeing in a manner consist- ent with [the Resource Manage- ment Act],'' the panel said in its decision. The panel also noted that the reduced minimum flow would prevail for only a temporary period and the conditions of the consent, including amendments made by the panel, would ensure that any potential effects on the river's ecosystem health were no more than minor. Consent conditions include: A Hutt River low-flow man- agement plan (HRLFMP). The condition provides for a review of the HRLFMP during the period of the consent variation should results require it. An ecological monitoring plan with regular monitoring of water quality, aquatic animals and cyanobacteria (potentially toxic blue-green algae) in the Hutt River. The condition provides for a review of the monitoring plan during the period of the consent variation should results require it. Appropriate actions developed to respond to any adverse effects identified through moni- toring, including specific measures to monitor and respond to toxic algal blooms which can be linked back to the reduced low flow. Field studies to confirm that there are no adverse effects on fish migration.
