    Invercargill is home to the Most Improved River in the country

    Invercargill is home to the Most Improved River in the country


    Environment Southland's Waihopai River took out the Supreme Award for the Most Improved River at the New Zealand River Awards.

    Freshwater scientist and one of the judges, Dr Roger Young, says the river has cleaned up its act, with E.coli dropping 6.1 percent per year over the last decade.

    The Waihopai River had previously been referred to as "the drain".

    The two runner-up finalists are Canterbury's Otakaro/Avon River and Wellington's Mangatarere River.
