27 Dec: Rāhui lifted Wellington Harbour

Wellington Water advises that the rāhui placed over part of Wellington Harbour following a wastewater overflow last weekend was lifted shortly this morning.

However, there is still potential faecal contamination in the area south from the Whairapo Lagoon entrance through to the Overseas Passenger Terminal, including the dive platform. It is advised to avoid swimming/diving in this area (refer to Wellington Water facebook page https://www.facebook.com/wellingtonwater/photos/a.897550566923848/3105213756157507/?type=3&theater).
