The Ngamatapouri School Waitotara River Monitoring Project is a collaborative effort to investigate and monitor the changes of the Waitotara River over the course of a year.

Project overview

Students are collecting drone imagery for analysis as well as using a Stream Health Monitoring Assessment Kit (SHMAK) to gather information on water clarity, conductivity, PH levels and temperature. Students are also creating a device to remotely monitor river levels to provide early warning of floods to the school and to make additional devices for their own homes and others in their community.
