From Manukau city to Manukau Harbour runs 12 kilometres of te Puhinui, Stuff reports, weaving its way through Tāmaki Makaurau as it’s done for generations. It’s historically been one of the most polluted waterways in the city, choked with rubbish from its urban and industrial surroundings. Restoring the Puhinui stream has been decades of work, and the latest step was taken in recent months with a partnership between mana whenua, Auckland Council and dozens of agencies and grassroots organisations: Te Whakaoranga o te Puhinui.
