Water Quality

We are involved in an intensive water quality monitoring programme of surface and ground water to benchmark the potential impacts of land development. Water quality on Wairakei Estate has been monitored at the Pueto, Orakonui Streams and multiple groundwater wells since 2006. The monitoring consists of a wide range of water quality parameters, including surface water flow and water quality, ground water level and quality, aquatic ecosystem quality and terrestrial habitat quality.

Waikato Regional Council has also been undertaking water quality monitoring at three sites relevant to Wairakei Estate since 1993 as part of their State of the Environment monitoring; two sites on the Waikato River (Ohaaki and Ohakuri) and one on the Pueto Stream (Broadlands Bridge).
