Government organisations, local councils, and water management businesses are all facing similar issues regarding the improvement and management of New Zealand’s freshwater quality. Real-time insight, like remotely tracking, sampling and monitoring nutrients and contamination, can help protect fresh and saltwater supply quality.
National organisations, regional councils and water providers are responsible for monitoring, measuring and managing water quality in Aotearoa.
With only 8% of our rivers and 5% of our lakes monitored, sampled on average once a month, there’s limited information about whether our water is safe to drink, fish from, and swim and how water quality aligns with water standards.
We can't act on what we don't know, and we can't protect what we can't see.
RiverWatch is the next generation of water quality monitoring. The Waka device has the latest remote sensing IoT technology, delivering real-time data to the RiverWatch cloud platform.
Our water health algorithms have been developed by water quality scientists, providing real-time data interpretation directly to a desktop or mobile device alongside delivery of the raw data.
