Northland Regional Council is urging the public to use an online tool to let it know which freshwater places they use (or want to use), and what for.

Cr Justin Blaikie said the council was hoping plenty of people would log on to www.nrc.govt.nz/wheresyourwai before the deadline of November 24.

"We're keen to find out about the freshwater spots people use around Northland, and what the water's like there, so we can work out the best ways to look after our wai," he said.

"The Where's your wai? online tool is really simple to use. People just need to mark their spot/s on the map, and tell us a bit about it, which will help ensure we're monitoring water quality in the right places, and are monitoring the right things."
