You may notice Wellington Harbour looking a little bright in patches along Oriental Parade. Don't be alarmed!
We were with Clyde Quay School this morning at Freyberg Beach, showing them how we use dye testing and explaining how the stormwater network flows to waterways. We placed dye in a stormwater sump, and watched it flow out into the harbour through the stormwater system. As it was high tide, not all of the dye came out so we expect to see more green dye flowing into the harbour throughout the day.
We use dye testing as a way to investigate broken pipes, cross connections and other issues within the network. It was great to be able to share this with the students and help them learn more about where water comes from and where it goes.
The dye is completely safe for the environment, and will dissipate as the tides change.
