This series contains the correspondence files created by the Rangitikei Wanganui Catchment Board in their role as Regional Water Board. Although the earliest papers on file are from 1957, the system itself was started about 1968 and the majority of files are dated after this.

The files contain both inwards and outwards correspondence and may also contain maps, plans, photographs and ephemera. They provide evidence of the operational, legislative and administrative actions of the Rangitikei Wanganui Regional Water Board. The files cover such topics as water quality, water rights, waste treatment, dairies and piggeries, dams, factories, irrigation and correspondence with Government Departments and Local Authorities on water matters.

There are two main types of files in this system. Those with a WG/- prefix concern general water matters, while those with a W/- prefix relate to more specific areas. The W/- files are organised by catchment and then by subject.
