17 March 2020: Owhiro stream update

We continue to get high results for contamination in Owhiro Stream. New signage has been put up in and around the area. We advise not to swim in or near the where the stream mouth exits onto the beach (see picture for no swim zone).

No swim zone at mouth of Owhiro stream

Results from the recreational water quality site on Owhiro Bay beach (marked on map as Baywatch sample site) are within the bathing guidelines.
