Bay of Plenty undertakes strategic water study

The Bay of Plenty Regional Council is to undertake a strategic water management study that could feed into a Water Management Plan for the region. The research will be supported by Government funding of $50,000.

The study will identify water infrastructure requirements in the region, with a view to delivering a reliable, resilient water supply to the region. The funding comes from the Ministry for Primary Industries Irrigation Acceleration Fund and has been matched by the Bay of Plenty Regional Council.

The refreshed action plan reflects 46 completed or reassigned milestones and 38 new actions for the region. The region’s original action plan was launched in October 2015. The action plan is regionally led and is supported by central government and represents a collaboration between local and central government, business and iwi.
