    Abstract This report examines thirteen sandy beaches and three river
    estuaries within the Wellington Harbour, Hutt foreshore and
    the adjoining South Coast, and provides an overview of the
    health of these intertidal habitats which provide significant
    amenity and environmental value. It suggests that the information
    gained would assist in future strategic planning and management
    of issues associated with: resource consents, pollution and
    state of environmental monitoring. identifies the following
    environmental pressures during sampling: flooding, gravel
    extraction, grooming, introduced weeds, landfill leachate,
    nutrient pollution, sand extraction, shellfish collection, stormwater,
    and vehicles. The report concludes that the sites were in a healthy
    condition.
