Swimmable Rivers - Mataura River Public Meeting

Ascot Park Hotel in Invercargill, New Zealand

Let's make the Mataura River swimmable again!

New Zealanders have been let down by a Government that has done nothing for freshwater except shift the goal posts and rebrand dirty rivers as clean rivers. But the Green Party are fighting for rivers that are truly clean enough to swim in.

Our MP Catherine Delahunty has already visited the Ruamāhanga, Selwyn, Waitara, Tarawera, Lucas Creek, Tukituki, Manawatū and Wairua rivers as part of her tour for swimmable rivers. Her next stop is the Mataura River. She'll be joined by fellow Green MP Jan Logie.

Catherine is hosting a public meeting in Invercargill to talk about national solutions desperately needed to help the local efforts to save the Mataura River. Please join Catherine and local guests who’ve been working hard to save the Mataura River.

New Zealand’s rivers can be clean enough to swim in, but only if the Government makes a commitment to truly swimmable standards. Communities, tangata whenua, industry and farmers can’t clean rivers on their own. They need the Government to help.
