Katikati wastewater overflow
Due to the significant amount of rainfall we had in our District in recent days, the Katikati wastewater system has become inundated with stormwater which caused its capacity to be exceeded.
As a result, we are currently experiencing overflow issues in the Katikati wastewater treatment plant, there is also evidence that some treated wastewater has entered the harbour.
We're working on resolving this issue, but for now please stay clear of swimming and collecting and eating shellfish from the area. We will get some warning signs at the water’s edge installed as soon as we can.
We will keep everyone updated with our progress.
