Swim­ming warn­ing

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Kapiti Coast Dis­trict Coun­cil has warned against swim­ming in three Kapiti streams af­ter they posted high bac­te­rial counts in testing.

It comes as the coun­cil re­veals all the dis­trict streams are likely to have spiked bac­te­rial counts.

The streams were the Whare­maukau with its out­let near Marine Gar­dens in Rau­mati, the Ti­toku near the Kapiti Boat­ing Club and the Waimeha in north Waikanae.

En­vi­ron­men­tal health team leader Julie Lloyd said the high lev­els of bac­te­ria were be­cause of low wa­ter flow in the streams and high tem­per­a­tures.
