- Do not collect shellfish
- Avoid swimming or entering the water
The large amount of heavy rain we've had over the past 24 hours overwhelmed the stormwater network and has caused a wastewater overflow at Beach Road, Richmond.
The overflow has now stopped, but a large volume of wastewater entered Tasman Bay.
Please do not collect shellfish, or enter the water for at least 48 hours.
There is potential to become ill from eating contaminated shellfish.
