Let's make the Hutt River safe to swim in.
Te Awakairangi, the Hutt River, provides water and life to the Hutt Valley and the whole Wellington region. It faces numerous threats and challenges, which is why the local Branch of the Green Party has launched a campaign to fight for a river that is clean enough to swim in, not just wade through. This is public meeting is part of the Swimmable Rivers campaign the Green Party launched to highlight what needs to happen to make all our rivers clean enough to swim in again.
Our MP Catherine Delahunty is hosting a public meeting in Lower Hutt to talk about national solutions desperately needed to help the local efforts to improve the water quality of the Hutt River. Please join Catherine and local guests who’ve been working hard to make the Hutt River swimmable.
New Zealand’s rivers can be clean enough to swim in, but only if the government lift its standards. Communities, tangata whenua, industry and farmers can’t clean rivers on their own. They need the Government to help.
