We know there's a huge amount of great work going on by people in communities around Otago to maintain or improve freshwater quality in their area.

We're show-casing 'everyday water heroes' here on this page so please tell us if you know someone who is going the extra mile to protect or enhance a river, stream, wetland or lake near you. 


Watch how the Waiwera/Kaihiku Catchment Group have got their community behind improving water quality in their area thanks to help from ORC's ECO Fund.

Check out this video from the Oamaru Mail of our staff who've been checking water and environment measuring sites around Otago following heavy rains late in 2019.
