LAWA - Land Air Water Aotearoa is a collaboration of organisations with a common aim: to tell the story of our environment.

Land, Air, Water Aotearoa (LAWA) has been established by like-minded organisations with a view to helping local communities find the balance between using natural resources and maintaining their quality and availability.  LAWA connects us with the environment by sharing environmental data and information.   

Initially a collaboration between New Zealand’s 16 regional councils and unitary authorities, LAWA is now a partnership between the councils, Cawthron Institute, and the Ministry for the Environment and  has been supported by the Tindall Foundation and Massey University.

Can I Swim Here?

Find the best places to swim over the summer months for over 700 recreational sites throughout Aotearoa.  LAWA shows the latest water quality results, and whether these have met recreational water quality guidelines, to help you decide where it is suitable to swim.
