12 million dollars to clean up Lake Ellesmere, New Zealand's most polluted lake.

Almost $12 million was committed yesterday by the Government, Environment Canterbury (ECan), Fonterra and Ngai Tahu, to be spent on measures including native planting, fencing and scientific research.

Some lakeside land would have to be bought, he said.
