The Regional Freshwater Plan applies to all fresh water in the Wellington region, including water in rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, aquifers (groundwater) and artificial water courses, but excluding freshwater in the coastal marine area. It also applies to all land in river and lake beds.

The Plan identifies issues to be addressed so that fresh water resources can be sustainably managed. Objectives, policies, and methods (including rules) have been adopted to address these issues.
