Contamination closes Bay of Plenty swimming spot

11:03 am on 23 December 2015

A popular swimming spot in Bay of Plenty has been closed because of possible wastewater contamination.

Health warning signs have been put up along Pilot Bay, in Tauranga.

It appeared a ship may have pumped wastewater into the harbour early this morning, the city council said.

Details of how much entered the water were still unclear.

Water quality test results were due tomorrow.
