Our values - Te mauri o te wai

Water has mauri (a life force) the actions we take can enhance the mauri or they can diminish mauri. It is also about the deep connection between water, the environment and people.

Tangata Tiaki
Together we protect our most precious taonga. We are responsible for looking after our water, our environment, our community, and the future of our mokopuna through the work we do.
United we support, connect and respect each other. The key to the wellbeing of any whānau is collaboration and sharing knowledge. We support, acknowledge, accept each other all the same - no matter how closely we work. We treat each other how we want to be treated.
Individually, we bring our best to every situation. We honour our plans, commitments and duties with pride, integrity and transparency. We accept that our performance is judged by the communities we serve, so we bring our best selves to work, remove our egos and seek feedback and guidance.
