Toxic algae levels very high in Hutt River
From Kaitoke Regional Park to the mouth of the river. We recommend you don't swim in the Hutt River until levels decrease. All dogs should be kept on leads near the river and shouldn't go in the water.
Whaitua - communities managing local water quality
Whaitua means space or catchment. Our Whaitua Committees are groups of passionate local people working together to deliver better water quality in their community. Get involved.
