This site is on a muddy, intertidal sandflat just downstream of the Mahurangi River and several smaller streams that drain mostly rural catchments. The site has been monitored since 1995 and is sampled for mud content and macrofauna every year, and for heavy metal contaminants roughly every ten years. Mud content is high and impacts the ecological health of the site.
