The Awamoko Pod
The Awamoko Catchment contains 4 Water Sampling Sites on the Awamoko Stream each of which
are sampled by ORC or NOICevery fortnight. Farmers in the catchment area are working together to
identify environmental areas of concern on their land and to identify improved farming practices to
implement to mitigate further water quality deterioration. DairyNZ are currently undertaking a case
study with one of the catchments farmers to assess the aspects of Social, Environmental and
Economical impacts on the farmer as they change and tweak their current management practices.
