As you probably know, every week during summer (1 November – 30 March) HBRC’s science team monitors 37 popular swimming and recreation spots – rivers, coastal beaches and Lake Tutira. All results are available on the HBRC website.
This extract is just to update you on the latest data and results available for the Mahia region.
Rule of Toe! If it’s been raining heavily, HBRCs’ best advice is to stay out of the water for at least 3 days. A handy guideline is that if you can’t see your toes when standing knee-deep in the water, then water quality is not the best for a swim.
