Over 2015-16 the committee went on a number of field trips around the catchment and a series of meetings to learn about and discuss such things as:

  • collaborative working, demographics, communications and engagement;
  • relevant policy and national guidelines and legislation;
  • local authority roles, and local projects;
  • historical and archaeological impacts, cultural use and health monitoring – rāhui and mahinga mātaitai;
  • stormwater and wastewater networks – flooding, climate change, sediment, contaminants and water quality;
  • hydrology and water use;
  • marine, freshwater and terrestrial ecology and biodiversity, and,
  • land-use history and future planning, forestry, Transmission Gully (Wellington Gateway Partnership), future development and transport infrastructure.

In 2017, the committee are preparing scenarios materials for modelling, identifying water management units, policy preferences, freshwater quality objectives and limits. They are anticipating completing the Whaitua Implementation Programme in early 2018.
