This is the homepage of the Waterways Centre for Freshwater Management; a teaching and research centre based at both University of Canterbury and Lincoln University. 

This website is designed to help you engage with the Centre and its teaching and research programmes, and to introduce you to the university staff and students who are involved.  It also provides resources to help you learn more about freshwater systems and their response to change, news about upcoming events, links to media articles of interest as well as meta-databases of information relevant to Canterbury’s water systems.
