The algal bloom health warning that was issued along the Ashley/ Rakahuri River at State Highway 1 and at the Rangiora-Loburn Bridge has been lifted.
River monitoring by Environment Canterbury, which included cyanobacteria surveying of the water in the Ashley/Rakahuri River, has shown the coverage of potentially toxic blue-green algae (benthic cyanobacteria) in the river has decreased and are now below the levels that are of concern to public health.
This has resulted in the warnings around the two bridges, which were put in place either side of Christmas, no longer being required.
Canterbury Medical Officer of Health Dr Alistair Humphrey says Environment Canterbury’s sampling of the Ashley/Rakahuri River, alongside other water flows within the Waimakariri District, will continue to the end of this summer and then will resume next summer when there is increased likelihood of cyanobacteria growth.
The algae occur naturally but can increase rapidly during warmer months – river users are advised to treat every low-flowing river cautiously.
Both areas of the river that were covered by the warning are popular with families for riverside walks, with the previous risk extending to pets, as the members of the community regularly exercise their dogs near both bridges.
