Frequently asked questions


The Otago Regional Council switched to the Environmental Data Portal (EDP) because it offered much more information than what was available on the ORC website.

The portal collates data from more than 350 monitoring sites around Otago and replaces the existing flood and low flow warning sites currently available on this website.

Go to the new Enviornmental Data Portal: envdata.orc.govt.nz

The EDP provides access to a user-friendly map which includes improved context of what is happening across the region, plus the ability to view and download up to 80 years of historical data for some sites.

The ability to access more comprehensive, up-to-date data, combined with an improved interface, means a much better user experience for people needing information on rainfall and river flow or levels.

The old system was switched off late 2023.

You can easily update your bookmarks or favourites by replacing it with the same location on the new portal.

Simply navigate to the location page on the EDP and add it to your bookmarks or favourites.

The following assistance is available on the EDP:

  • A comprehensive training guide, in the form of a PDF
  • A short training video
  • A Data Grade and Approval Level Guide, in the form of a PDF
  • You can also watch the webinar video introducing the EDP:
