Water Quality

Otago has some of the best water quality in New Zealand and we want to keep it that way. We assess water quality through our network of monitoring sites which measure the state and trends of water quality around the region.

During the summer month (December to March) we carry out recreational water quality monitoring at 25 popular swimming spots around Otago (rivers, lakes, and beaches). The results of this weekly monitoring are available on LAWA.  Samples are taken every Monday with the results being available on Wednesday.
