Objective CC1 is to improve information on freshwater takes and sources of freshwater contaminants. To achieve this, Policy CC1 requires regional councils to establish, operate and maintain a freshwater quality accounting system and a freshwater quantity accounting system for each freshwater management unit. Policy CC2 requires regional councils to ensure that the information gathered through those accounting systems is available to the public.
The Ministry for the Environment has published draft guidance for regional councils regarding freshwater accounting.
