Weymouth Beach is in the Manukau Harbour near the Papakura Channel and has had a permanent health-warning sign in place since 2000. Historic water quality data reflects high levels of faecal contamination. This investigation was undertaken by Auckland Council in April 2014 to determine concentrations of faecal indicator bacteria (FIB) in different areas of the beach and the origins of any detected contamination.

Six sites investigated for E.coli, Enterococci and Microbial Source Tracking
