Public warning after discolouring of water in Lake Tarawera
9 January 2015

Bay of Plenty Regional Council recommends the public avoid swimming or drinking water from Lake Tarawera after residents from Te Rata Bay/Hot Water Beach reported discolouring of the water to staff earlier today.

Geothermal activity is a possible cause for the white, milky appearance and water samples have been taken to test for what is also suspected algal blooms. The test results are not due back until next week at which point the public will be further notified.
