Northland rains could have contaminated waterways

Northland residents are being told to stay away from waterways, as they could potentially be contaminated.

The Whangarei District Council has warned flooding from the weekend’s heavy rainfall could have caused rural septic tanks and urban manholes to surcharge. 

The Council recommends the public avoid swimming and consuming shellfish from storm affected areas at least five days following a storm.
