What's in the water? A survey of recreational users of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary/Ihutai

You are invited to participate in the project by completing this electronic questionnaire.
The aim of the project is to take a snapshot of the following-
What do recreational users (e.g. wind surfers, walkers, shell fish collectors) of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary/Ihutai know about microbiological water pollution
What factors influence their decisions about water quality to undertake recreational activity
To what extent do recreationists utilise information provided by sources such as the regional council and recreation clubs.
As a recreational user of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary/Ihutai (the Estuary) over the age of 16 years, participation in this project will involve the completion of this online survey that should not take any longer than 10-15 minutes.
