ecological impacts of gravel extraction,ecological effects of gravel extraction o a subject that has received limited attention in new zealand o preliminary studies indicate that impacts depend on river type and nature of extraction activities o some perceptions (mine) • if extraction occurs outside the wetted channel then no problems • gravel supply is naturally variable – river ecosystem.environmental impacts of sand and gravel operations in new,mitigating the environmental impacts of aggregate, stone, and industrial mineral mines could be improved by making some changes to existing regulations and, most importantly, by controlling development and sprawl in both urban and rural areas. the following recommendations are made to better manage environmental problems and mitigate the effects of.environmental assessment and aggregate extraction in,the extraction of sand, gravel, and bedrock resources is regulated under the aggregate an environmental impact statement is not a prerequisite to the granting of a licence. however, every application for a licence is circulated within mnr and externally to relevant.
