It is now safe to swim / collect food in the Waiari downstream of the Te Puke Plant.
Thank you for your patience.

Due to the heavy rainfall experienced in the Te Puke network area, our Te Puke Waste Water Treatment Plant is struggling with capacity.
This morning we have had some overflowing occurring. We will be taking samples to confirm the water quality but until we know it is safe, is recommended that people should not swim or collect food in the Waiari downstream of the Te Puke Plant.
