This site is located in the upper reaches of the Pāhurehure Inlet in a tributary which extends from the mouth of the Whangapouri Creek. Whangapouri was stablished in 2015 and has been sampled for macrofauna, mud content and metal contaminants. The wider catchment surrounding Whangapouri is earmarked for substantial urban development. This site currently has high mud content and a relatively low level of metal contamination.
