Auckland Council contracted NIWA to report on the ecological condition of 33 lakes in the Auckland region using LakeSPI (Submerged Plant Indicators). Surveys of the region’s lakes have been undertaken since 2008 and historical vegetation surveys have been used where available. Results are updated based on surveys of 10 lakes carried out over the 2017 autumn (March and May). This report collates and reports all LakeSPI information for the Auckland region’s lakes.
