Freshwater Ecologist Dr Mike Joy from Victoria University in wellington was interviewed by thisquality Founder Sam Hudson on the up and coming Government ‘3 Waters' agenda.

Dr Mike Joy has studied freshwater ecology, while also gaining a pHd and masters in freshwater ecology from Massey University; after teaching there for twenty years.

He was asked whether the Government had proposed an idea to set up a new water regulator called Taumata Arowai — further questioned why it is being set up.

Recent news has stated that drinking water pollution in New Zealand, over high nitrate levels, puts hundreds and thousands potentially at an increased risk of getting bowel cancer.

Problems regarding freshwater and drinking water around the country are dire for the future to come; mostly because the responsibilities that regional and local councils have, are failing to acknowledge or listen to solutions. It has lead to an influx of mismanagement over the last decade.
