A timeline for the publication of research into the state of Taranaki's waterways has been settled.

Veteran journalist Jim Tucker has compiled Clearing the water, a 140,000-word illustrated document of his findings, after more than two years of research.

He had hoped to publish it online last week but was stopped from doing so by Puke Ariki, whose research centre commissioned him in 2012 to undertake the project under a sponsorship relationship with Taranaki Regional Council.

A meeting between Puke Ariki and Mr Tucker was held on Monday to discuss publication dates after Mr Tucker voiced concerns about the delay.

Puke Ariki director Kelvin Day said Clearing the water would be published online and in hard copy on May 21.

"All issues were resolved in a face-to-face conversation. It was a productive meeting."

Mr Day said the book would be printed in New Plymouth. "The key thing now is to get [publication] under way and pass the manuscript to the designer in two weeks time."

Mr Tucker said his research would be published in its entirety.
