Geology and Groundwater Hydrology of the Heretaunga Plains
This brief note a guide to the geology and hydrology of the Heretaunga Plains until the publication of the Napier Bulletin in which the subject will be more fully considered. It is confined to features that have a direct bearing on the operation of the Ground Water Control Authority in its early stages.
The Soil' Conservation and Rivers Control, Gouncil presents this- publi_c:ation in the _hope-:.that .itÂ·.will prove useful as a record of the floods which have occurred in Nw Zaland between-1920 and 1953 d that it will provide a ready reference to those who are concerned with the effects of flooding.
It has: been compiled by-Mr C. A. Cowie, B.E., and checked by Mr A. K. Attwood, B.E., Assistant Engineers, Ministry ofWorks, during their period of secondment to the Council's staff.
A summary of. the floods which occurred during the period 1920-30 was compiled by the Meteorological Service of the Air Department, and it is from this that the present volume has grown. Where possible major floods prior to 1920 have been included, both to afford a comparison and to extend the record, but there are very few reliable data available prior to that year.
