Coun­cil on­line sur­vey: Is the wa­ter at our beaches clean?

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Welling­ton Re­gional Coun­cil wants to hear res­i­dents’ opin­ions on the qual­ity of wa­ter in their har­bours and rivers.

A short, on­line sur­vey will run un­til May 6 aim­ing to get feed­back on dif­fer­ent as­pects of the re­gion’s rivers and coasts.

Re­gional coun­cil se­nior en­vi­ron­men­tal sci­en­tist Sum­mer Green­field said the sur­vey would also seek com­ment about the way recre­ational wa­ter qual­ity mon­i­tor­ing was re­ported and how peo­ple liked to get in­for­ma­tion.

‘‘ Whether it’s swim­ming at Ori­en­tal Bay or surf­ing at Castle­point, we’re keen to hear where and when peo­ple are get­ting in the wa­ter,’’ she said.

‘‘This in­for­ma­tion will help us im­prove our recre­ational wa­ter qual­ity mon­i­tor­ing pro­gramme and the way we make the re­sults avail­able.’’

Peo­ple who com­plete the sur­vey will have an op­por­tu­nity to en­ter the draw for a 3SIXT HD sports ac­tion cam­era or an iPod shuf­fle and Bass­burger pocket speak­ers.
