Urban Runoff Quality Information (URQIS)

Purpose

URQIS is a resource developed in 2012 that provides stormwater and urban stream quality data to the public by accessing a database of urban runoff quality data collected from all over New Zealand, compiled by NIWA. The database includes data supplied by Councils, Transport Agencies, Research Institutes and Universities across New Zealand. The development of URQIS has been funded by NIWA’s Freshwater and Estuaries National Centre and Auckland Council’s Stormwater Team.

This system is still a work in progress, and we invite your comments on its usability so that we can deliver the best possible system to the stormwater and resource management community.
