Lake Rotoehu Monitoring Buoy

Site Info:
The Lake Rotoehu buoy is operated by the University of Waikato. The buoy provides continuous monitoring of a variety of lake conditions and supplements Bay of Plenty Regional Council's monthly monitoring programme.

The bottom waters of 'shallow' lakes like Rotoehu may deoxygenate in a matter of days during warm, calm conditions. The continuous monitoring equipment will enable measurement of the occurence and rate of deoxygenation in real-time. The rate of deoxygenation of bottom waters is a core lake health measurement.

Data collected from the buoy will be utilised to monitor and assist with the ongoing improvement of lake health. The data from the buoy will enhance our knowledge of the lake and provide for greater research opportunities for students and staff of Waikato University under the auspices of Bay of Plenty Regional Council's Chair in Lake Management and Restoration.
