    Abstract This report presents the results of a targeted assessment of
    sediment quality at selected intertidal locations in Porirua
    Harbour in February 2009. The primary focus of the
    assessment was the southern end of the Onepoto Arm
    where sediment contamination is believed to be greatest.
    However , intertidal sediment sampling was also undertaken
    at the mouths of the 'Onepoto' and Browns streams, and duck
    Creek. In addition, sediment samples were collected from the
    lower reaches of several streams discharging into the harbour
    that receive urban storm water inputs.
