The Canterbury Water Management Strategy (CWMS) is being implemented throughout Canterbury following several years of collaborative work by the Mayoral Forum, the Steering Group, Environment Canterbury, and the region's 10 territorial authorities including Mackenzie District Council. It provides a shared vision to protect fresh water in the region.
Under the CWMS, zone committees have been set up to work collaboratively to develop effective water management solutions that deliver economic, social, cultural and environmental outcomes in consultation with the local community.
