State of the environment reports

Updated 15 July 2013 4:39pm

In June 2012 Greater Wellington completed a series of eight technical reports and summary leaflets documenting the 'health' of air, land and water (freshwater and coastal) resources in the Wellington region. The reports are based on environmental monitoring and investigations over the past five to ten years (and longer for some resources).

Collectively this reporting represents the most comprehensive analysis of the state of our natural environment since Greater Wellington's formal State of the Environment report, Measuring up, was released in 2005.
