Safeswim water quality testing
In a joint project between Rivercare and SafeSwim, funded by Auckland Council and Foundation North, we have managed to have two sites on Te Wai o Pareira included in the SafeSwim programme. Visitors to Taipari and Chapman Strands will now be able to check the water quality before getting in or on it.
RiverCare funded testing commenced in mid May 2021 with the test results being provided to the SafeSwim team. In addition, the funding received from Foundation North may enable us to supplement the base level testing undertaken by Auckland Council to get the most accurate data we can to build the most reliable SafeSwim computer model possible.
