Seminar on Waikato Water postponed
Kia ora, greetings dear friends

The organizing committee for the Seminar on Waikato Water have decided to postpone the event. We do apologize for this change and we thank you very much for your support and interest.

Only last week we discovered that the Regional Council work on the Healthy Rivers is not able to engage in public forums on this significant programme until they complete their consultations. Early on it was anticipated we would have a speaker to enable us to prepare for involvement in Healthy Rivers.

We will resume with an event on public interest in Waikato Water in the New Year.
Thank you very much

Betsan, Anne and Warwick
