Current issues

Current issues that the Advocates are actively pursuing are:

  • The Waikato Regional Council is working to clear the Hirangi Arm. This is the water that breaks from the main stream in the area of the Swirl Pool and flows under normal conditions as a small stream before re-entering the main stream of the river on the True left at the top of the Reed Pool.

  • Prevention of didymo
  • Concerns about a reduction in trout size, numbers and condition

See the Advocates website issues page for more information.
