Precautionary investigations following water quality monitoring detection at Tory St culvert

Regular water quality monitoring at the Tory St culvert has shown an increase in faecal coliforms (which can indicate the presence of wastewater) to levels that have triggered investigations by Wellington Water crews to determine the source of contamination.

The area is not a recreational swimming site, however signage will be placed as a precaution until testing indicates water quality has returned to safe levels. Sampling will also be undertaken at Oriental Bay and the Whairepo Lagoon as a precaution, however it is not expected that these areas will be impacted due to dilution.

Wellington Water's water quality monitoring programme enables rapid detection and response to contamination events. Response thresholds are deliberately set at precautionary levels in order to minimise public risk.

Updates on the situation will be provided on Wellington Water's website and social media.

Loud music among the Zoo animals late into the night

Francesca from Melrose

Wellington Zoo has an outdoor venue among the animal cages where live bands and DJs blare music late into the night. I can hear it very clearly from my home.

The Zoo is generally quiet from very early evening and through the night. The animals will be used to the dark and quiet at this time, where they get some respite from being caged entertainment. But every now and then the evening brings more human harassment in the form of fantastically loud music and often chattering or yelling humans, that subjects these animals to further stress, sometimes until after midnight.
The Zoo told me this is done to make money. It’s punishment on top of punishment for animals, dressed up as both fun and conservation. It makes my skin crawl hearing this in our neighbourhood.
If you’re confused about the conservation façade, read from the many experts and research to understand that Zoos are really just recreation. And not for the animals.
Why does Wellington Zoo need to make it even worse?

Do you work in an office? Does your workplace have empty photocopy paper box lids lying around?

Our SPCA Wellington Centre has almost completely run out of and we are in DESPERATE need for paper box lids 😰

We use the lids of the photocopy boxes as disposable litter trays for kittens, and in the middle of kitten season, we need them more than ever!

We are so reliant on donations like these from the generous Wellington public and unfortunately, we are completely running out and need your help! 😰

If you're clearing out paper trays from your office or home, we would be SO grateful if you could consider dropping them off at our centre.

We are located at 140 Alexandra Road, Newtown, and it would mean so much to us!

Did the Basin Reserve miss an opportunity to makes the loos more equal?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

An $7.5 million dollar renovation brought the 95-year-old Museum Stand at the Basin Reserve up to modern standards - except for the women's toilets.

The stand reopened on Friday, an hour before the first test against India began. During the test the only part of the interior open to the public was the new toilets. Sadly, that means less access for women. Men's toilets have two access points from the outside while women queue in the corridor, missing the on-field action. What was your experience?
