    An Auckland beach remains unsafe for swimming due to old sewerage pipes being plugged into stormwater connections

    An Auckland beach remains unsafe for swimming due to old sewerage pipes being plugged into stormwater connections


    Hobson Bay, the waterfront for suburbs of Remuera and Parnell, has been declared an indefinite health hazard and warning signs have been erected along a six kilometre shoreline.

    The head of Auckland Council's Safeswim department, Nick Vigar, says the bay might be safe for swimming by the summer of 2022.

    He says there's no doubt that most of the streams coming into Hobson Bay have levels of pollution that are just too high from a public health perspective.
