This site is on an extensive intertidal mudflat in the centre of the Mahurangi Harbour. The site has been monitored since 1995 and is sampled every three months for mud content and macrofauna, and roughly every ten years for heavy metal contaminants.
Mud content is moderately high and contaminant concentrations are generally low, resulting in fair ecological health at the site.
