Let's make the Waitara River swimmable again.
The Green Party have launched a campaign to fight for rivers that are clean enough to swim in, not just wade through. We’ve chosen ten rivers from around the country to visit, and highlight what needs to happen to make all our rivers clean enough to swim in again.
Our MP Catherine Delahunty has already visited the Ruamāhanga River. Her next stop is the Waitara River.
Catherine is hosting a public meeting in Waitara to talk about national solutions desperately needed to help the local efforts to save the Waitara. Please join Catherine and local guests who’ve been working hard to save the Waitara.
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.
