KK View Default

Over summer Council works with Environment Canterbury, Food and Health, the district health Board and Land Air Water Aotearoa to test the water quality at popular coastal and river swimming spots across the district each week.

This includes Kahutara, Peketa Beach, Armers, Gooches, South Bay Parade, Lyell Creek lagoon and Mangamaunu Surf Beach (meatworks).
