Te Mana Ora | Community and Public Health has lifted its algal bloom health warning issued for the Selwyn River (Waikirikiri) at Glentunnel. This was issued on 19/11/2021.
Recent cyanobacteria surveys of the Selwyn River (Waikirikiri) have shown the cover of potentially toxic algae (benthic cyanobacteria) in the river has reduced and is now below levels of concern to public health.
Dr Ramon Pink, Medical Officer of Health of Te Whatu Ora Waitaia | Canterbury, says Environment Canterbury’s monitoring of Selwyn River (Waikirikiri) will resume next summer when there is increased likelihood of cyanobacteria growth.
