Kaupokonui River at Beach Domain

The site is located in the lower reach of the river near the mouth and is tidal.

The site is adjacent to a camping ground and is used for swimming, fishing, whitebaiting (in season) and picnicking. 

For all sites, the Council advises :

Avoid for three days after heavy rain, if the river is high, or if you cannot see the bottom clearly.

Summer recreational surveys showed that 92% (2015-2016) and 100% (2016-2017) of samples met the freshwater microbiological water quality guidelines prepared by the Ministry of Environment in conjunction with the Ministry of Health (MfE, 2003) and did not exceed the ‘Action’ level (>550 E.coli/100mls).  

The State of the Environment technical report showing the freshwater recreational monitoring results for 2016-2017 is available at www.trc.govt.nz/environmental-monitoring-technical-reports/
