We are currently working on how we present information about water quality monitoring for the Wellington region.

Owhiro Bay Sampling September 2020 - December 2021

Any significant change in results will trigger a detailed investigation. The regular sampling programme may be supplemented by one-off sampling in accordance with resource consent conditions, should we experience an incident with the network. For more information on our tests, what we test for and how we do it, click here.
