River Levels & Rainfall
The West Coast Regional Council collects rainfall and river level data from Karamea to Haast, with a flood monitoring service provided for the Karamea, Mokihinui, Buller, Grey, Hokitika and Waiho Rivers. This service uses the network of recording stations which transmit information via radio and cellular pathways to the Council’s computer database. We report this information alongside data collected from other sites managed by partner agencies such as the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA).
