Tukituki River at Walker Road (Waipawa)

The Walker Road access point on the Tukituki River east of Waipawa is a popular swimming and recreational spot,  and attracts fishers as well.  It is downstream of the confluence of the Tukituki and Waipawa Rivers. 

Due to ongoing access issues for the 2023-24 Recreational Water Quality Monitoring season, sampling will be undertaken downstream at Tukituki River at Tamumu Bridge. 

The Tukituki at Walker Rd is a cobble dominated site.  This area is popular with fishermen and also attracts swimmers and walkers during the summer months. 

Elevated levels of bacteria are generally found after heavy and prolonged periods of rain causing increased surface runoff water to enter the river from the surrounding livestock dominated catchment.
