The changing state of the Puhinui

In 2010, the Puhinui stream was the dirtiest of all 31 streams monitored by the Auckland Regional Council. It rated in the bottom 25% for E. coli, ammoniacal nitrogen and phosphorus pollution. This ignited a groundswell of concerned local residents, mana whenua, and governing bodies. Our project works in support of their action.
