    The science

    Water quality information

    LAWA shows the best available water quality information to help you decide where to swim. The water quality of swimming sites in the Auckland region is predicted using models. The models use current environmental conditions such as rainfall, wind and tides to predict the current levels of faecal indicator bacteria (FIB) in the water. The water quality status is also updated when unexpected events such as sewage spills are detected, so you have the latest available information.

    Predicted risk status

    Current Enterococci status

    The latest predicted result is checked every 15 minutes so you can see the current water quality status for this site.

    Reminder

    Heavy rain flushes contaminants from urban and rural land into waterways and we advise you not to swim for 2 – 3 days after heavy or prolonged rain – even at sites that generally have good water quality. Check that the water is clean and clear before taking a dip.

    Conditions may have changed

    There has been significant rain since this site was last sampled. This may have affected the water quality at this site.
