Author: Environmental Monitoring Programme Staff (Editor: Ian Buchanan).
Waikato Regional Council is required to collect environmental information to comply with its obligations under Section 32 of the Resource Management Act 1991. The Environmental Monitoring Programme, Resource Information Group of Environment Waikato is responsible for much of this collection. The Environmental Monitoring Programme is ISO 9001:2008 registered through Telarc New Zealand for the supply of environmental information and services, including water quality, biological sampling, air quality, land and rating information and geographical information systems.
This report summarises the information collected during the 2009 calendar year.
Procedures used are in accordance with those outlined in the Quality Manuals. Data is stored on Waikato Regional Council's computer system.
Data is readily available. Under current policy, data is free to all users but there is a charge for the time taken to access the data. This charge is waived for certain users, such as educational organisations.
The ISO 9001 quality system is given priority and the scope of registration will be increased to cover all activities completed by the Environmental Monitoring Programme. Data capture statistics and equipment performance are reviewed and used to improve performance.
