Water quality testing has shown it is safe to swim and collect shellfish from the Tauranga Harbour in the Kiriwai Place/Fergusson Park area of Matua following a wastewater overflow on Saturday 8 January.
The overflow was a result of an electrical fault at the Kiriwai Place Wastewater Pump Station causing the pumps to stop and the alarm triggers to fail. The overflow discharged to a small drain and then the harbour, impacting the Fergusson Park foreshore area and boat ramp.
Warning signs that were in place have now been removed.
