Waterways enhancement

Our waterways are precious assets that are constantly under pressure from thirsty and growing populations, and the myriad pollutant runoffs from urban and rural economic activity.

Kiwi’s are slowly coming to grips with the consequences of sub-optimal waterway management - lower water quality outcomes and fundamentally compromised water systems.

Gradually public and private stakeholders are investing in the protection, restoration and enhancement of our waterways.
