Anaura Bay Lagoon

Managed by Pulse Energy

More than 100 species of native flax species were planted close to this campsite in 2014 by students from Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Mangatuna and the Uawa-based EIT Tairawhiti horticulture course with funding from the DoC, making this 2km long sandy beach even more beautiful. Unfortunately, water run off from surrounding farmlands have contaminated water here. There is a permanent boil water advisory at the campground and swimming is discouraged.

SOURCE INFORMATION

The Gisborne District Council measures water quality at 14 coastal beaches from November to March.

Marine water is tested weekly for enterococci levels.

The council issues an AMBER alert if a single sample level of enterococci are greater than 140 units /100 ml of water. Daily testing would occur to determine if the problem is ongoing. When two consecutive results show Enterococci levels higher than 280 units /100ml of water warnings are posted. Signs will also be posted at beaches and until water levels return to a safe level.

Pulse Energy updates Swim Guide for the latest water quality information daily, Monday - Friday during the swimming season.

A beach has a GREEN current status in Swim Guide when it has met the water quality standard of <140 enterococci/100 mL and has a rank of GREEN.

A beach has a RED current status in Swim Guide when samples exceed the water quality criteria of > 140 enterococci/100 mL and there is an AMBER or RED alert.

A beach is marked Grey in Swim Guide when there is no current or reliable monitoring information available.

Swimming is not recommended within 48 hours after a heavy rainfall or around storm water outfalls and at stream mouths.
