NZ beach water quality data now online

Information on the water quality of 350 beaches around New Zealand is now accessible online. The Land, Air, Water, Aotearoa (LAWA) website provides information on water quality, enables people to stay healthy, and raises awareness of the importance of improving New Zealand’s water quality.

The website started with monitoring data of over 1100 river sites around New Zealand and now provides weekly beach monitoring data and seasonal indicators. LAWA displays the results of water quality monitoring at popular beaches, so you know which beaches are safe for swimming, surfing, and other recreational activities.
