Details

When referred to in an environmental permit, these rules will allow the operator to construct on a main river an outfall of no more than 500 millimetres diameter through a headwall affecting no more than 1.5 metres of the river bank. If the diameter of the outfall is less than 300mm then the operator may be able to register an exemption.

These rules do not allow the construction of outfalls on or within 8 metres of a flood defence; or within 50 metres of a manmade structure in, under or over the watercourse.

The activities shall be undertaken outside of the relevant fish breeding season.
