Wellington south coast seawater warning

5:06 pm on 29 December 2010

Wellington City Council is warning swimmers and surfers to stay out of the water along the city's south coast.

The council says Tuesday's heavy rain caused diluted sewage to be discharged from the Moa Point treatment plant.

Water-quality sampling is continuing but the council says people should steer clear of the water for another 24 hours.
