Project Mission
Our mission is to produce a system that can help target areas which are likley to be impacting waterways, these will initally focus on the increase of Nitrates and tital suspended sediment within waterways. It is highly likely that the information generated will appeal to Regional Councils and have implications for land owners and farmers for managing their property and/or livestock.

At the start of 2019, a new opinion poll revealed pollution in New Zealand's rivers and lakes is worrying Kiwis more than any other issue. The nation-wide Colmar Brunton poll conducted for Fish & Game New Zealand in December showed that 82% of people surveyed were extremely, or very concerned about the issue. NIWA have identified a number of potential sources of stream and waterway contamination these include:

  • Fuel storage
  • Fertilisers
  • Manure
  • Silage
  • Dairy shed wash downs
  • Greenhouse waste
  • Septic tanks
  • Erosion




Impacts on Waterways


Nitrates & Nitrites

Too much nitrogen can cause unwanted plant and algae growth in waterways.
This can smother stream beds and destroy habitat, as well as reducing the amount of oxygen or affecting the pH of the water.  Soluble nitrogen compounds come from the leaching of urine patches or fertiliser on pasture, from the runoff or leaching of effluent, or directly from sewage and stock in waterways.
