The Government has committed $47 million of funding to 34 projects to improve freshwater management. The projects are part of the first round of funding from the Freshwater Improvement Fund.
The Freshwater Improvement Fund commits $100 million over 10 years to improve the management of New Zealand’s lakes, rivers, streams, groundwater and wetlands. It supports projects, with a total value of $400,000 or more, that help communities manage fresh water within environmental limits.
Funding for each project is subject to negotiation of deeds of funding.
