This site is located on a muddy, intertidal flat downstream of the Kaipara River and several streams. Monitoring began in 2009, with mud content and macrofauna sampled every three months and heavy metal contaminants roughly every ten years.
Mud content is moderately high and has increased since the start of monitoring, while contaminant concentrations are generally low.
