A company is taking water for bottling from bores of the aquifer that feeds the Poroti Springs, near Whangarei. Our hapū seek your help.
A private water company is applying to build a bottling factory at Poroti Springs, near Whangarei.
The plant will not only risk the purity of the spring and aquifer but also add increased activity in the local community and around Poroti Reserve. It will create a significant health and safety issue with 80 truck movements per day, right next door to Poroti School.
Up to 2.5 million litres of water is consented daily to Zodiac Holdings Ltd to take from the Whatitiri aquifer that feeds the springs.

I am involved because I assist the Poroti Springs portfolio manager Meryl Carter who is a trustee for “Whatitiri Maori Reserves Trust”.
We have both been part of the long struggle for justice for the waterway which is over allocated and affected by pollution.
