New Zealand’s Queenstown Beach Safe For Swimming Following Contamination

WELLINGTON, Jan 5 (NNN-RNZ) – A popular Queenstown beach in New Zealand has been deemed safe for swimming, after wastewater contamination concerns.

Results from testing of water quality at Sunshine Bay in Queenstown have come back negative regarding contamination, after a wastewater overflow at the bottom of Arawata Terrace was reported to Queenstown Lakes District Council on Monday, a council statement said, today.

The area remains safe for swimming and other recreational activities, said Simon Mason, the council’s infrastructure operations manager.

The wastewater overflow was caused by an overflowing manhole blocked by tree roots, according to the council.
