Geothermal: monitoring and reporting

Our region's geothermal areas are unique and internationally renowned. But many have been damaged by changing land use and energy generation, and there's increased pressure to develop the areas for more energy or as tourist attractions.

Waikato Regional Council regularly monitors and reports on our region's geothermal resources, the pressures they face, and how they are changing.

Our  indicators below summarise the results of our science and monitoring programmes, and provide a holistic report on the state of the Waikato region's environment.
