Te Mana o te Wai


Ngati Kea Ngati Tuara is working to clean up the waterways in Horohoro as part of the wider goal to clean up the Waikato River. Over the last few years our enviornmental team has been clearing and planting waterways on some of our hapū farms in Horohoro.

In 2018-2019 water monitoring of the Pokaitu Stream was undertaken, the results showed that tributaries of the Pokaitu Stream contain an unacceptable level of farming nutrients. This baseline data allows us to
work towards reducing those nutrients.

The plants for these projects are sourced from our own native plant nursery.

We would like to acknowledge the support and funding we have received for this project from Waikato River Authority, Te Arawa River Iwi Trust and Waikato Catchment Ecological Enhancement Trust.
