This Muscovy duck appeared yesterday in Epuni Street in Aro Valley. It seems tame and attracted to people. It wouldn’t let me catch it tho. Also appears hungry and thirsty. I’ll check if it’s still there shortly and offer it some food & water. It’s also in the middle of the street and I don’t want the poor chap to get run over. Wondered if it was someone’s pet duck.
We have been made aware of a video on social media of Titahi Bay beach with comments of suspected wastewater pollution/sewage.
We can confirm there has been no discharge or overflow event from the Porirua Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The video shows seaweed and sea foam, which is common following heavy winds.
We will be conducting tests in the area for reassurance, and will provide an update when these results have been received.
