    You should note that this water is sacred, by local iwi. You can’t touch it, let alone drink it.

  3. Aileen Monaghan says:

    This spring is absolutely beautiful and needs to be protected at all costs. There were, and possibly still are, moves to drain it by commercial companies from China and others, who are currently draining pristine water for free, which our govt allows, and selling it commercially overseas Our govt in NZ is a traitor to our environment and the people and allows exploitation of our land. This spring must not be touched greed and exploitation.
