The purpose of this RFT is to assist the Department in meeting its water quality and habitat condition restoration objectives at Lake Whangape, by planting native plant species. The water quality at Lake Whangape has declined over the last 40 years due to hydrological modification, sedimentation and nutrient loading from intensive dairying and the aggressive spread of alligator weed. Planting native species will create a 10m buffer for land runoff into Lake Whangape and create a better habitat for native birds. The improved water quality will allow the regrowth of macrophytes improving the natural lake ecosystem ultimately benefiting endemic taonga freshwater species such as Tuna.

This work is necessary to fulfil the Department’s workstream as part of five-year partnership initiative with Waikato-Tainui and Waikato Regional Council.
