Sharing Knowledge - Raising Awareness - Bridging River's Advocates

Whangawehi Catchment Management Group

Mahia Peninsula is an Isthmus island on the East Coast of the North Island between Gisborne and Napier. In July 2010 the local community of Whangawehi raised the issue of the potential effects of the Mahia Beach Community Waste Water System and other land uses on the water quality of the Whangawehi stream, the estuary and the mahinga kai beds outside the river mouth.
The group became a catalyst towards raising awareness among all Whangawehi land users of the impact of their activities upon its water quality.
