Better mobile access to low flow data

Media Release

5 February 2013

Better mobile access to low flow data

It has just become even easier to access low flow information on Hawke’s Bay rivers and streams, with Hawke’s Bay Regional Council launching a low flow data mobile website for smart phones.

The move comes after requests from consent holders throughout the region to have ‘on-the-go’ access to low flow data.

The mobile website is set out in catchments, offering information on low flow warnings and bans within each area. Anyone accessing the HBRC website from a smart phone is automatically directed to the new mobile website.

HBRC Group Manager Iain Maxwell says the new mobile website will enable consent holders to access information at anytime on their smart phones without having to find a computer to use.

“Consent holders are keen to keep up with all the key low flow data information and by creating this mobile website they can access it wherever and whenever they need it,” says Mr Maxwell.

The low flow information is updated daily using our network of flow monitoring sites throughout the region.
