Safeswim goes global
Posted at 4:00pm Tuesday 07 May, 2019
Last month Mayor Phil Goff announced a partnership with global engineering firm Mott MacDonald designed to turn Auckland Council's Safeswim system into a multi-million dollar global product.
The partnership will look to sell Safeswim, Auckland Council's real-time, region-wide water quality monitoring system, to third party users such as other councils and regional authorities around the world.
Safeswim results have highlighted the breadth and frequency of poor water quality at Auckland's beaches.
Mr Goff says this has been behind the decision to invest at record levels in cleaning up beaches over the next 10 years.
