Testing frequency and reading levels

We monitor the water quality at The Cut every month, year round.

During heavy rain this river can become highly sedimented and contaminated from the agricultural run-off upstream as well as run-off from industrial sites.

About The Cut

Popular fishing site.

The Turanganui River is formed from the joining of the Waimata River to the north of the city and Taruheru River from the west. Both catchment areas are large and run through intensive cropping and agricultural land. The Waikanae Stream, which runs through the industrial region of the city, joins the river just above the sample site.
