Where's your favourite river swimming spot?

We want to know where your favourite swimming holes are.

It may be a river or a lake, but let us know – send us a photo or a video and you could be in with a chance of winning a $100 Hunting & Fishing voucher.

Environmental and science manager Lois Easton says council is trying to understand which rivers and lakes around the district people like to swim in so they can ensure water quality monitoring is done in the right place and safety information is up to date and relevant.

“It also will help us develop plans for how we can improve swimming water quality across the district,” says Lois.

To enter you just need to take a photo or short video of your favourite spot (ideally with someone swimming there), send it to the email address and make sure you tell us where your photo was taken.

Email bonita.mackey@gdc.govt.nz with your video or photo by 30 November 2017.
