    Abstract In April 1998 Wellington Regional Council met with the Owhiro Bay
    Residents’ Association. The Association was concerned about the
    influence of sewage overflows from the Landfill Road area on the quality of
    Owhiro Stream water. The association was particularly interested in
    microbial levels and perpyton or algal slime growths, which may have
    increased as a result of the overflows.

    In response to this request for information, Wellington Regional Council
    undertook a water quality study in the area tested for bacteria (faecal
    coliforms), nutrients (dissolved reaction phosphorus (DRP), dissolved
    inorganic nitrogen (DIN)) and periphyton.

    This report outlines the background, methods, results and conclusions
    drawn from this study.
