A health warning has been issued for the length of the Canterbury's Ashley/Rakahuri River after more toxic algae was found.

The Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) says moderate to high cover of potentially toxic algae (benthic cyanobacteria) has been found along the river between the Okuku River Confluence to the State Highway 1 bridge.

A warning was already in place for the SH1 site, and while a warning was recently lifted for the Loburn-Rangiora site because it had become dry, new algae growth was already being seen there.

Canterbury medical officer of health Dr Ramon Pink says the algae looks like dark brown to black mats and can product toxins harmful to people and animals.

"Exposure may cause skin rashes, nausea, stomach cramps, tingling and numbness around the mouth and fingertips."

Anyone who experiences such symptoms should visit their doctor immediately, and animals showing signs of illness should be taken to a vet immediately.

Reticulated town water supplies are currently safe, but no-one should drink water from the river at any time, Pink said.

I then down sized in my living circumstance so it was wrapped and placed in a new sealed lock up storage unit on 30.8.2014. And. It wasn't taken back out until 11.12.2017. Used several times for new year 2018. and now not needed.
No rips, no stains, no fades due to high quality material , zips perfect. Cushions and padding all still firm and full, I’m a non smoker and have no pets . It’s in good condition
It’s very heavy and made to last. And the purchase price was $1,579.00

Price: $750
