Welcome to Freshwater Update 62, September 2014.
Freshwater Update 62 brings you the latest information from our Freshwater and Estuaries centre, as well as Water Quality maps and information and River flows.
The latest news from the centre:
It’s now almost ten years since blooms of the stalked diatom Didymosphenia geminata – commonly known as didymo, or “rock snot” – were first discovered in the Waiau River, Southland.
NIWA and Waipa District Council are working together to demonstrate the use of enhanced pond systems (EPS) to achieve cost-effective, efficient wastewater treatment.
Increasing interest in citizen science is benefiting environmental monitoring. Citizen data supplements professional data, meaning more data collection overall.
