Entry into force notes
This National Policy Statement enters into force 28 days after the date of its issue by notice in the New Zealand Gazette.

This National Policy, containing six Appendices, establishes the Freshwater management in New Zealand. Given the vital importance of freshwater resources to New Zealand and New Zealanders, and in order to achieve the purpose of the Resource Management Act 1991 (the Act), there is a particular need for clear central government policy to set a national direction, though the management of the resource needs to reflect the catchment-level variation and different demands on the resource across regions. Its Objectives are divided as follows: AA1 aims to consider and recognise Te Mana o te Wai in the management of fresh water. Policy AA1. By every regional council making or changing regional policy statements and plans to consider and recognise Te Mana o te Wai recognising the connection between water and the broader environment. By recognising Te Mana o te Wai as an integral part of the freshwater management framework it is intended that the health and well-being of freshwater bodies is at the forefront of all discussions and decisions about fresh water, including the identification of freshwater values and objectives, setting limits and the development of policies and rules. This is intended to ensure that water is available for the use and enjoyment of all New Zealanders, including tangata whenua, now and for future generations.
