Water quality in Northland

We're working with our landowners and farmers, industry groups, Maori and local communities to improve water quality in Northland.

Our integrated programme for freshwater management

Improving water quality and the way water is managed is a marathon, not a sprint, and we all have a part to play. Some of our main work in this area was outlined in a recent issue of the council's newsletter, the Regional Report.
