A small leak has been identified on the Atawhai rising sewer main which has resulted in some sewerage discharge to the Haven. Council contractors have been on site attending to the leak.

The leak occurred on a section of the pipe that is currently due for replacement this year as part of the Corder Park pump station upgrade.

In consultation with the NMDHB signage (No Swimming) has been installed and will be removed following consultation with the NMDHB.  There is a very low risk to the public.

Please note: the collection of shellfish in the Haven area is banned.
