Heavy rainfall causes Oakura overflow

  • Ongoing rainfall combined with a partial blockage has caused a wastewater overflow from a manhole in Oakura.
  • This overflow has gone into a tributary of the Matekai Stream.
  • We’re sorry this has occurred and we’ve been in touch with iwi and hapū, Taranaki Regional Council, the Taranaki District Health Board and other recreational users.
  • Warning signs have gone up advising people not to swim or gather kai (for 28 days) in affected areas.
  • Keep up with the latest information on the Can I Swim page on our website.
  • We are investing $248m over 10 years to fix the district’s plumbing.
