Monitor Stream Health


Throughout the Kaipātiki Local Board area, there are many natural streams that flow into the Waitematā harbour. To ensure they are healthy and stay healthy, it’s important to monitor the water quality within the streams.


To undertake this assessment, you will need specific training and resources. Please contact your local volunteer reserve group if you would like to get involved with stream monitoring and register your organisation on the Wai Care website.

Get involved so that we can make Kaipātiki Citizen Science Month the biggest Citizen Science project in Auckland!
