Safeswim: Behind the Headlines
Simpson Grierson Level 27, 88 Shortland Street, Auckland 1010, New Zealand
Auckland Council’s recreational ‘Safeswim’ water quality monitoring programme had been running for over 20 years in various guises. An increased awareness of water contamination issues, coupled with recent significant changes to the programme’s structure created unprecedented public and media attention during the 2017/18 summer.
This presentation will provide candid insights into the operation of the Safeswim programme, including technical and organisational challenges, international reference points, stakeholder engagement and communication mechanisms. Information on the advanced modelling approach to predict likelihood / duration of recreational water contamination, and the performance of the revised programme to date, will be provided.
As always, there will be drinks, nibbles and great networking!
