Environment Southland aims to lead and involve the Southland community in managing these natural resources in order to protect and enhance the lifestyle and wellbeing of current and future generations. Staff from various different teams at Environment Southland are involved in a range of activities in Waituna, from providing advice and assistance to the community on sustainable land management practices and pest control, drainage maintenance in the Waituna Creek Drainage District (as part of a special rate), to water quality, compliance monitoring and science investigations.
