Lower Waitaki River Management Society

The LWRMS is a community group established in 2006 to enact the Waitaki River Management Strategy. Our goal is “To protect and enhance, in a sustainable way, the Lower Waitaki River System”. This duty of kaitiakitanga includes protection and enhancement of the habitat of the southernmost sub-population of the critically threatened Canterbury mudfish (Neochanna burrowsius), which occurs in riparian seepages on the southern bank of the Waitaki River.

Project Twin Streams

Project Twin Streams is a large-scale environmental restoration project working to improve water quality in Waitakere streams by revegetating 56 kms of streambanks with native trees and shrubs, and purchasing properties within the flood plain for removal. This stabilises the banks from erosion, creates a cool, shaded environment for ecology to thrive and filters toxins entering the streams.

Through its unique approach, Project Twin Streams engages local residents in the project through partnering with local community organisations to deliver the planting program.
