Work programme for improving the quality of our fresh water

The Government is committed to delivering a noticeable improvement in our water quality within five years. Its work programme for the next two years is set out in the document Essential Freshwater: Healthy Water, Fairly Allocated.  The Government acknowledges that water quality cannot be addressed without a concurrent and substantive discussion with Māori. The document Shared Interests in Freshwater sets out a new approach to the Māori/Crown relationship for freshwater.
