Abstract: The Ka Tu Te Taniwha Ka Ora Te Tangata Programme involves collaboration between Ng?ti Rangiwewehi, GNS Science, and Bay of Plenty Regional Council. The two primary objectives of the Ka Tu Te Taniwha Programme are: to combine technical, scientific and Matauranga-a-iwi information for the Awahou groundwater catchment into an integrated data repository and knowledge resource; and to allow Ngati Rangiwewehi to incorporate traditional knowledge and understanding of cultural significance to inform and plan for future freshwater development in the Awahou catchment. Information provided in this report addresses the first objective, and is a collation of available scientific information for the Awahou Catchment and Taniwha Springs study area. Information provided in this report will subsequently be uploaded into a web-based portal to be freely accessible by Ngati Rangiwewehi and project collaborators. (auth)
