 Waikanae Estuary has shown marked variation in sedimentation, sediment mud content, and other indicator values over time. Rather than any directional trends that would suggest a degradation in estuary state since monitoring began in 2010, strong variability in environmental conditions is an inherent characteristic of the estuary, and is determined mainly by flow conditions in Waikanae River.
