Shaping the future of freshwater in Kāpiti 

Healthy water is central to our lives.

In the Wellington Region we have five ‘whaitua’ - which is a Te Reo Māori word for space, or catchment.  In a whaitua, all the water is connected from the mountains to the sea. Freshwater needs to be protected and restored as healthy waterbodies and for the communities’ connected with it.

Every whaitua is different, so we look at them individually.  And now, we've turned our attention to Kāpiti.
