Te Kākano Aotearoa Trust - Lake Wanaka

Project duration: 5 years
Freshwater Improvement Fund contribution: Up to $375,000

This project will develop a community management plan for Lake Wanaka to ensure the lake is clean and accessible for future generations. 
There are particular concerns about lake snow in Lakes Wanaka and Hawea and the potential linkages with nutrient run-off and land use change.  The project is a partnership with the Regional and District Council and is subject to further negotiation on the details of the work programme.
