Wellington rivers could spell trouble for swimmers this week, with every popular spot in the region ranked as either unsuitable for swimming, or at least requiring caution.
Toxic algae blooms and elevated levels of E. Coli are prompting warnings from Land Air Water Aotearoa (LAWA), which provides updates on 125 spots in the Wellington region.
On Tuesday morning, according to LAWA, 16 of 20 popular river spots in the region were unsuitable for swimming, and caution was advised for the remaining four due to large amounts of E. Coli bacteria and toxic algae blooms.
Toxic algae and E. Coli both cause gastrointestinal illness and infections, with symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.

Please put NFP if you do not want your comment used by Stuff.
