Clean-up com­mit­tee gears up

Kapi-Mana News - - MOVIES/NEWS -

A com­mit­tee has been formed to over­see the clean- up of Porirua Har­bour.

The Te- Awarua- o- Porirua Har­bour and Catch­ment Joint Com­mit­tee will be made up of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Porirua City Coun­cil, Ngati Toa, Wellington City Coun­cil and Wellington Re­gional Coun­cil.

It is chaired by Porirua City coun­cil­lor Bron­wyn Kropp and met for the first time two weeks ago.

Kropp said high­lights to re­port in the last year re­gard­ing the har­bour in­cluded up­grades to Porirua’s sewer and stormwa­ter net­works, es­pe­cially the retic­u­la­tion of Pau­ata­hanui vil­lage.

Ngati Toa com­pleted the first full fish survey of Porirua Har­bour, and Guardians of Pau­ata­hanui In­let re­cently com­pleted its three-yearly cockle survey of the Pau­ata­hanui In­let, she said.

‘‘The re­sults of the lat­est cockle survey are the first real in­di­ca­tion that the health of the Pau­ata­hanui In­let has steadily im­proved,’’ she said.
