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.
2017 - 2018 monitoring programme
The 2017 - 2018 monitoring programme starts Monday, 4 December 2017 and runs until Tuesday, 6 March 2017. Results from each week's testing are available at the end of that week.
