Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.
The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.
It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.

We just moved to Totara Vale since a month ago from Glenfield. It is so disgusting that someone has stolen our rubbish bin tag(Orange Tag). Please be alert every one and suggest how can we stop this kind of cheap activity.
There are 10 days until Christmas!
The weather has been warming up and we need to start applying sunscreen regularly and correctly so we can enjoy some time in the sun.
Sunsmart tells us to apply a broad-spectrum, water resistent sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30+ at least 20 minutes before going out in the sun, and again 10- 20 minutes after being in the sun. Remember to apply the correct amount of sunscreen too. Find some good guidelines at www.sunsmart.org.nz....
