Glendowie Stream, within Churchill Park, is a lovely waterway, flowing underground through the suburb of Glendowie for long sections and surfacing across the southern border of Churchill Park.
After leaving the park it is piped beneath Glendowie Reserve, surfacing again at Roberta Ave and then flowing out into the Tāmaki Estuary.
Continued positive action is required to mitigate pressures of erosion and sedimentation on this receiving environment (Seachange, 2014).
The Glendowie Stream monitor is one of the longest, continuously operating TEEF/Innovate Auckland monitors.
This monitor was disabled in recent storm events, and it is waiting reinstalment.
