Enabling Iwi to Monitor Water Quality

Te Mana o te Wai

Our waterways are connected to a sense of identity, as we are connected to water and the natural world through whakapapa.


Te Mana o te Wai, the central concept for freshwater management in Aotearoa New Zealand, is integrated with the health and well-being of our waters, from the mountains to the seas.

The degradation and threat of extinction of our waterways are significant. To protect the health and well-being of our communities, means protecting the health and well-being of our freshwater.

Our water monitoring system enables community to monitor water pollution, and measure water quality in real-time so that action can be taken to improve the water quality of our lakes and rivers.
