Thanks to the local community for their continued patience and understanding as we continue with our trucking operations from the Moa Point treatment plant and the Southern Landfill.

We will be adjusting the route due to Island Bay’s Day in the Bay this weekend, with the trucks following an alternative route along State Highway 1 and up through Brooklyn (pictured below). Trucks will use this route from 6am-6pm on Saturday and Sunday, with trucks following the existing route outside of these hours. We expect about 5 to 6 trucks each way per hour during this period.

From Thursday through to Sunday, we will also be staggering the truck movements, as well as reducing the number of trucks on the road.

We apologise for any inconvenience this additional traffic may cause, but we are working to prevent the need to discharge the sludge into Cook Strait while we work to repair the pipeline to the Southern Landfill.

Following our removal of the health warning signs in Owhiro Bay, we would like to provide clarification on the condition of the Bay.

These signs were removed as per our protocols for the reopening of the beach. A source of the spike in contamination was identified and the sampling at the long term beach monitoring site had returned to normal.

We acknowledge that our communication could have been better as removing the warning signs implies that the Owhiro Stream, that crosses the beach, is safe for swimming in. Owhiro Stream, like many urban waterways, has a long history of contamination and is regularly unsafe for swimming in. Improving the quality of Owhiro Stream will require a coordinated and long term programme of works.

We have taken immediate action to correct the lack of information, and yesterday placed warning signs at the stream mouth at Owhiro Bay. Our operations team are preparing for continued investigations in the catchment to see if there is another fault or cross-connection that we can find and resolve.

Cost: Free
Location: Taiwhanga Kahau — Auditorium (lower ground floor), Corner Molesworth and Aitken Streets, Wellington. Entrance on Aitken Street.

Celebrate an extraordinay intercultural partnership
To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of an extraordinary intercultural partnership which culminated in the creation and exchange of the ceremonial waka taua ‘Te Hono ki Aotearoa’ the Dutch Embassy supported by the National Library will screen the film, followed by kōrero and refreshments.

A living connection between Dutch and Māori cultures
‘Te Hono ki Aotearoa’ follows the journey of a waka taua (ceremonial canoe) hewn from a 600-year-old Kauri. The waka taua was ceremonially gifted, on permanent loan, to the Museum Volkenkunde in Leiden, the Netherlands. It is the first and only case in which another culture is entrusted with the custody of a waka.

New Zealand film maker Jan Bieringa created a film, which traces an extraordinary intercultural partnership from the commission, construction and handover of the waka. The waka taua is appropriately named ‘Te Hono ki Aotearoa’, and can be translated to “The Link New Zealand”.

Netherlands Ambassador Mira Woldberg will give the opening remarks of the 10th anniversary of the waka, a living connection between Dutch and Māori cultures.

Panel discussion
Following the film screening is a panel discussion comprising:

•Steven Engelsman, the former Director of the Volkenkunde Museum

•Alex Miesen, member of the Dutch waka crew who look after the waka

•Jan Bieringa, Director of “Te Hono ki Aotearoa”

•Tamahou Temara, Toi Māori Aotearoa Operations Manager

Cost: Free event.
Location: National Library, corner Molesworth and Aitken Streets, Thorndon

Lecture by Judith Binney Fellow, Dr Nepia Mahuika

A free public lecture by 2019 Judith Binney Fellow, Dr Nepia Mahuika.

A discussion about the Māori practice mākutu
Through a Western lens the Māori practice mākutu has too often been presented as witchcraft, being described by some as the ‘black arts’, ‘black magic, and ‘curses.’
Drawing on work for a forthcoming book on the history of mākutu in Aotearoa New Zealand, Dr Mahuika overturns simplistic perceptions of mākutu as ‘Māori witchcraft’.
Exploring connections that mākutu has to other indigenous peoples in the Pacific and abroad, the lecture challenges all New Zealanders to reimagine the way we see mākutu, bringing a deeper understanding to a topic that has often been misunderstood and sensationalised in novels, films and media reports.

The event will be followed by light refreshments.

About the speaker
Dr Mahuika was the inaugural Judith Binney Fellow in 2019 and is Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Waikato, where he teaches courses in New Zealand History, specialising in Māori and Indigenous History. His Judith Binney Fellowship has supported the completion of a research project on the history of mākutu in Aotearoa / New Zealand.

Dr Mahuika is also president of Te Pouhere Kōrero, a broad collective of Māori colleagues interested in Māori history.
