Papanui Dashboard

The Regional Council is working with farmers and community groups to improve the health of our local rivers and lakes. We aim to reduce nutrient levels, such as phosphorus, in the Papanui Stream. Specific targets are based on national guidelines and local aspirations. The results here are preliminary - contact the Regional Council if you require more information.

Our water quality dashboard shows the state of specific locations, relative to local and national targets. Currently this includes Papanui Stream (Tukituki catchment).

The results of monthly ecological health monitoring for 80+ Hawke's Bay sites is at LAWA. In the summer months we publish information on “Can I Swim Here?

To give the dashboard some context, dissolved oxygen supports aquatic insects and fish. Dissolved oxygen is influenced by temperature, river flow, and the amount of nutrients. The condition of these indicators is given as traffic lights. A green light means that life-supporting capacity is good, red/ orange means aquatic life is under pressure. The dashboard also includes measures of management activities such as farm plans.
