Please avoid any contact with surface water as it may be contaminated with wastewater.
Due to the amount of rain, a lot of surface water and stormwater overflow is on the ground in Richmond and Motueka, as well as other low-lying areas. Contractors are working on clean-up.
As part of Tasman District Council Environmental Monitoring programme weather conditions are monitored at three sites around the region. Additionally there are three sites monitored in the Nelson region.
