Manganui River at Everett Park (D/S Kurapete S.)

This ring plain river drains an extensively developed agricultural catchment. The site is situated at Everett Park approximately 300 m downstream of the Kurapete Stream confluence.  It is a popular site for swimming, walking, picnicking and fishing.

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. 

Since the 1999-2000 season’s survey, discharges from the Inglewood municipal oxidation ponds’ system into the Kurapete Stream (approximately 8 km upstream of the survey site) have been diverted out of the stream to the New Plymouth wastewater treatment plant.

Summer recreational surveys showed that both for 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 100% 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 cfu/100mls).

 The State of the Environment technical report showing the freshwater recreational monitoring results for 2017-2018 is available at www.trc.govt.nz/environmental-monitoring-technical-reports
