    Abstract These reports summarise the results of the Baseline Water Quality
    Monitoring Programmes for the rivers and streams of the Wellington
    Region. The Wellington Regional Council monitors water quality at 50 river
    sites, 15 of which are monitored in the Wairarapa. Water samples are
    analysed for various chemistry and microbiology variables on a monthly
    basis while macroinvertebrate communities are sampled during summer
    low flows at 42 sites.
