Swimming water quality
Each summer, we test the water quality at a number of Northland’s popular coastal and freshwater swimming spots to check its suitability for swimming.
2016 - 2017 monitoring programme
The 2016 - 2017 monitoring programme starts Monday, 21 November 2016 and runs until Tuesday, 21 February 2017. Results from each week's testing are available at the end of that week.
