The recommendation from NCC and the Hawke's Bay DHB is that sand used in sandpits and bark on playgrounds don't need to be disposed of. We recommend adding lime to sandpits and raking through. This and good sunlight will reduce any chance of contamination. If you are unsure then disinfectant can be sprayed onto sandpits once you have treated the area with lime.
Floodwaters can carry bugs that cause disease from the ground surface and sewerage systems. DO NOT eat any food that had been in contact with flood waters, including fruit and vegetables from your garden.
Also avoid collecting shellfish at the following locations until further notice:
This is due to possible of contamination from the severe flooding. We have put signs up at these locations.
