Where it’s happening
The Waipa Catchment Plan covers the entire Waipa River catchment but also identifies priority areas within the catchment.
In priority areas, on-farm actions to reduce erosion, maintain water quality and protect biodiversity would make the greatest difference to the Waipa River’s water quality. Some of these areas currently have the greatest impact on the river’s water quality.
In the priority areas, Waikato Regional Council intends to partner with other agencies to support farm landowners in maintaining water quality and protecting biodiversity. For more information, see Supporting priority areas.
