ABOUT OUR CATCHMENT
The Upper Tukituki Catchment covers 13,084 hectares with 64 farms greater than 20 hectares. The primary township is Ongaonga through which the Ongaonga Stream flows. The catchment straddles the Tukituki River from the Ruahine Ranges to the confluence with the Tukipo River.
Low Macroinvertebrate Community Index scores reflect sediment issues in the river and high levels of nitrates are present in groundwater.
