The Auckland Council contracted NIWA to report on the ecological condition of 33 lakes within the Auckland region using LakeSPI (Submerged Plant Indicators). LakeSPI was developed according to Ministry for the Environment agreed criteria for freshwater indicators, to allow long-term state of the environment monitoring and reporting for lakes. Surveys of Auckland’s lakes have been undertaken since 2008; this report collates all available LakeSPI information for Auckland’s lakes.
