WAI stands for Water Action Initiative; we’re a community group set up to safeguard and improve the quality of the water in and around the broader Upper Clutha catchment. We share knowledge about our precious alpine waterways and the real impacts of human activity on water quality, and work alongside our community to take action to mediate those impacts.
Management of even small amounts of environmental measurement/monitoring data quickly becomes challenging. We are working on the development of tools to support the monitoring and evaluation of freshwater restoration outcomes and need to develop ways to effectively store, collect and visualise data from a range of sources. Volunteers with a passion for water quality and experience in data management are sought to support our work.
Volunteers should be well organised with great attention to detail and able to manage their own workload. Good communication is key, along with problem-solving skills and IT confident with experience in analytical/visualisation programs.
If you don't meet all these requirements but are interested in finding out more we'd love to hear from you!
You'll be joining a fabulous team and we hope will get satisfaction from supporting our work and gaining an insight into the quality of the water in our district.
