Report algal bloom

A member of the public has reported an algal bloom at the ocean shore near Hardinge Road in Napier.
Hawke’s Bay Regional Council will take a sample to identify whether there is an algal bloom of concern, but results won’t be available until the week beginning 10 January 2022.
While algal blooms typically don’t cause issues to people, they can in rare cases. As a precaution, the public are advised not to swim there if a bloom is visible
