Water Rights for Ngai Tahu: A discussion paper (Ka Roimata Whenua series)
Author: Te Maire Tau
ISBN: 9781988503035

There is perhaps no issue in New Zealand today more contentious than water rights. The Crown claims that no one owns water, but its use, irrigation and treatment are controlled by local governments empowered by the Crown. Since the 1990s resource consents for the taking of water, in Canterbury and Southland especially, have increased dramatically and the environmental situation is reaching a breaking point. After years of discussion some kind of system regarding the ownership of water is inevitable. In 'Water Rights for Ngai Tahu', Te Maire Tau considers the historical and political framework that has contributed to the current state of water rights in the Ngai Tahu takiwa. He explores the customary, legal and Treaty frameworks that feed into the debate regarding the ownership of water.
