The Waimakariri water zone lies north of the Waimakariri River and extends from Pegasus Bay in the east to the Puketeraki Range in the west. Both the Waimakariri and Ashley/Rakahuri rivers have high ecological, mahinga kai and recreational values. The vision for the zone is, “Mō tātou, ā, mō kā uri, ā muri ake nei; for us and our children after us".
