At the start of Project Maitai/Mahitahi, Council conducted a survey of Roding and Maitai River users and residents to better understand how people use and value these rivers, and the priorities for future river management.
By the end of its second year, Project Maitai/Mahitahi was starting to have a visible impact on the river catchment and its flora and fauna.
Year three saw great progress made with the Te Wairepo/York Stream focus, fish passage improvements and plenty of community involvement
Project Maitai/Mahitahi is now into its fourth year. This year will see the construction of a major legacy project – a wetland at Groom Creek in the Maitai Valley.
York Stream (Te Wairepo) is a tributary of the Maitai River and is included under the umbrella of Project Maitai/Mahitahi.
