We undertake monthly monitoring of five sites in the Whakakī catchment, including two on the main lake, one of the Rahui Channel, and one each on the Waikatuku and Tuhara streams. A monitoring platform in the centre of the lake monitors weather and water level in real time.
We undertake this comprehensive monitoring as it gives us the best chance of being able to understand the lake, and diagnose any problems. This information is used to guide what needs to be done to restore the lake to healthy levels, and the long term monitoring can show us whether things are getting better or worse.
This dashboard show water levels, key nutrient information such as nitrogen, phosphorous, and e.coli, and an integrated metric that pulls all of these in to one graph to show the overall lake health.
We hope that the dashboard will provide useful information to Whakakī community to educate, inform and help with decision making
