Quotes

"While water quality goals for Tunakohoia Stream haven’t reached the levels expected at this stage in the process, water quality is improving and the total weight of contaminants going into the stream is generally on the decline" Mr Basheer said
...The Station's mission is "…to create the science and technology needed to sustain and enhance southern forest ecosystems and the benefits they provide." More information is available at the SouthernSouthern Research Station page
...According to news reporting from Coventry, United Kingdom , by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Despite the pressing environmental, economic and social issues surrounding water abstraction, scientific methods for managing its ecological impacts remain in their infancy. In this paper, we demonstrate statistically significant relationships between in-stream ecological condition using macroinvertebrates and the hydrological effect of groundwater abstraction on surface water flows in streams originating from Permo-Triassic sandstone aquifers in the English midlands."
"It's designed to be a cheap, easy and fun way to actually get real data you can use without having to do all this chemical analysis and that kind of thing, to see what's actually living there, and go by that" Forrester said
