Riparian Management Zone Incidents

The Riparian Management Zone (RMZ) is a zone of varying widths adjacent to the bed of a river, lake, indigenous wetland, or the Coastal Marine Area. This resource affected area was introduced for incident reporting on 1 July 2005. This will therefore have an impact on incident numbers that would previously have been logged as affecting land or the coastal marine area.

There were 22 incidents reported as affecting the RMZ during 2005-06, the majority being earthworks and vegetation clearance.
