New Zealand offers nearly $1 million to help Maori restore Lake Horowhenua

The New Zealand government has announced it will provide almost $1 million towards the restoration of Lake Horowhenua.

Environment Minister Dr. Nick Smith and Maori Party co-leader Marama Fox made the announcement of the $980,000 funding injection on November 12, 2015.

The Government is committed to turning around the poor water quality of Lake Horowhenua,” Smith said.

Smith said the “joint commitment to restoring the health of Lake Horowhenua” would complement the Lake Accord restoration work currently underway.

Fox said Lake Horowhenua was the “heartbeat of Muaupoko“.
