Tiwai Future - Awarua Working Group website
The Awarua Working Group (AWG) has set up a website to keep interested parties up to date with Tiwai Remediation: Cultural, Historical, Social.
Awarua Working Group (AWG) has been set up to develop, drive and monitor the programme of work involving the closure of the Tiwai smelter and site remediation is being undertaken by Te Rūnaka o Awarua.
Awarua Rūnaka wants to ensure there is a continuation of a social and cultural lens taken when a successful remediation of Tiwai Point is described for our future generations. This looks like a safe continuation and enhancement of the activities undertaken – past, present, and future – with a level of confidence that these activities are safe (fishing, mahinga kai).
This site is not just an industrial site, but a site used for social and cultural purposes, that extend to the surrounding land and sea.
The AWG has developed a remediation strategy (PDF, 837.21 kB) to deliver successful remediation of Tiwai Point. The four core goals are as follows:
Goal 1: Preserve the past
Goal 2: Safely continue present activities
Goal 3: Preparation and readiness for future use
Goal 4: Enduring partnerships
