The seven waterways that are part of this project are all situated in te rohe o Ngaa Rauru. Three are within the rohe of Horizons Regional Council (Manawatū-Whanganui region) and the remaining four are in the rohe of Taranaki Regional Council (Taranaki region). The seven waterways are as listed and located on the map below:
1. Kai Iwi Stream, which flows past three marae: Te Aroha, Taipakee and Kai Iwi and, in the past, has been a source of kai (Manawatū-Whanganui).
2. Ototoka Stream, which is next to Pakaraka Marae and feeds into the Maxwell swimming pool. The hapuu wishes to fence off a kilometre of the stream above the swimming pool and plant a riparian margin (Manawatū-Whanganui).
3. Okehu Stream is a fishing site where Ngaati Maika have traditionally set their hinaki and gathered watercress. The willows have grown so thickly that the hapuu cannot access the stream (Manawatū-Whanganui).
4. Waitootara River bank adjacent to Kaipoo Marae, across the river from Waitootara township. The hapuu has already been engaged in a riparian planting programme but many plants died and the protective fencing has been swept away in floods (Taranaki).
5. Tapuarau Lagoon is in a protected coastal area administered by the Department of Conservation. The hapuu has already been involved with the planting programme but more planting is needed to secure the health of this waterway (Taranaki).
6. Middle reaches of the Waitootara River adjacent to Takirau Marae and Pourua land blocks (Taranaki).
7. Whenuakura River adjacent to Whenuakura Marae (Taranaki).
