Te Mania

The Te Mania catchment is relatively small at 13.1 sq km. The headwaters of the stream arise predominantly from Coromandel andesite with a tributary in Waiteariki ignimbrite. The stream then moves through river sediments before emerging into Tauranga Harbour south of Katikati.  Pasture covers two thirds of the catchment followed by indigenous forest and scrub (21%) and horticulture (10%). 

Water quality monitoring occurs at State Highway 2.  Increasing trends have been identified for bacteria (E. coli  and faecal coliforms). Median E. coli  levels are near to exceeding amber alert recreational water quality guidelines.
