Update on the water monitoring programme at Whangawehi

The temperature loggers, lent by HBRC for a combined water monitoring programme, have been removed from 6 different sites in the Whangawehi catchment. These loggers have been recording since December 2014. Once analysed, the data should allow the community to better understand temperature variations during the warmer months of the year. The data recorded is part of the bench mark monitoring undertaken to measure the impact of the restoration programme on the water. High temperatures are a limiting factor for the development of a wide range of micro and macro organisms.It will be intersting to review the data in 5 years time when the trees planted last year have grown and started shading the stream.
