What Spot? A Survey of Greater Wellington Water Users

Thanks for your interest in our 'What Spot?' survey, helping to map water use in the Greater Wellington region! This project has finished, but you can still check out the interactive mapping below to see where others love to swim in our beautiful region. 

Te Hā o te Ora – The Breath of Life – exists in our region’s waterbodies. They’re places for gathering kai, they’re places for swimming and eeling and fishing, for paddling and kayaking, for blessings and for our tikanga.

And now it’s that time of year again: that time when the weather comes onside - when more and more kiwis connect with their favourite local spot to exercise, play, hunt, eat, and immerse themselves in the mana of our region’s water. To make sure these places are safe for us all, Greater Wellington Regional Council monitors water quality at sites across the region, as well as planning for better water quality outcomes and working with users to ensure we all manage this precious resource effectively.

We know the prime possies, but we want to hear from you: What’s your top spot?

Drop a pin where you connect with water now or where you’d like to be able to in the future. If you feel like sharing some snaps you can upload a photo to your response and a comment explaining any concerns you have with water quality at the site. Responses are visible to everyone filling out the survey, so you might even get some hot tips about where’s cool to cool off this summer!
