Further information on swimming risk

15 Feb 2018

Due to the unprecedented severity of the recent rainfall, our rivers and beaches are taking longer than usual to get back to normal.

Council’s daily monitoring of our marine swimming sites indicates an ongoing potential health risk from swimming at the beach, so the water contact advisory is still in place. We will advise as soon as this is lifted.

To be safe, we also recommend staying out of the Maitai River until the water is clean and clear.
