Who We are

To preserve and protect the Rotorua lakes for present and future generations, the Bay of Plenty Regional Council has partnered with the Rotorua Lakes Council and Te Arawa Lakes Trust to roll out the Rotorua Te Arawa Lakes Programme.

Together, we’re working to remove 320 tonnes of nitrogen from Lake Rotorua by 2032 and restore the water quality of all Te Arawa lakes.
