Lake Tutira: Stay away from the water.
Toxic algae in Tutira
An algal bloom on Lake Tutira
poses serious health risks for
any recreational activity on
the lake, the Hawke's Bay
District Health Board's Public
Health Unit warns.
Risks include severe skin
rash, stomach upset, hay fever
or asthma attack, says the
board's Medical Officer of
Health Nicholas Jones.
People should not swim or
pursue any other recreational
activities which will involve
contact with the water or use
lake water for drinking or
cooking until further notice.
Dogs should also be kept
Tests carried out by
Hawke's Bay Regional Coun-
cil have shown high
concentrations of cyanobac-
teria (blue-green algae) and
the council warns against any
contact with the lake water.
Cyanobacteria are an
ancient group of organisms
with characteristics in com-
mon with both bacteria and
algae. In certain environ-
mental and hydrological con-
ditions, free-floating cyan-
obacteria cells can multiply
and form what is known as
algal blooms. Some cyanobac-
teria species produce toxins
(cyanotoxins) which pose a
risk to humans and animals.
in Hawke's Bay
A sea level rise of between 0.8m and
1.6m is among the latest climate
change predictions for Hawke's Bay.
More droughts, worse storms and
fewer frosts are also expected according
to a report by Hawke's Bay Regional
The report, a summary of NIWA
predictions, emphasises that there is a
large degree of uncertainty'' regarding
sea level rise.
The Ministry for the Environment
recommends a 0.8m rise be factored
into risk assessments but recent data
shows sea ice is melting faster than
predicted and a rise of between 0.9 and
1.6m by 2100 is possible.
NIWA estimates there has been a 1.1
degrees Celsius increase in tempera-
ture between 1900 and 2009. Average
Hawke's Bay temperatures are forecast
to increase between 0.2 and 2.3C by
2040 and up to 5.4C by 2090.
Night-time minimum temperatures
are likely to increase faster than day-
time maximums meaning fewer frosts.
Annual rainfall is forecast to
decrease 3 per cent by 2040 and 4 per
cent by 2090 with wetter summer and
autumn months outweighed by drier
winter and spring months.
These seasonal changes are linked to
a predicted increase in westerly winds
during winter and spring and a weak-
ening westerly flow in summer and aut-
The drought risk for Hawke's Bay
remains unchanged from a 2005 report
which predicted a 1 in 20 year event
would become a 1 in 10 year event by
2080 under low to medium scenarios or
as frequent as 1 in 2.5 years in medium
to high scenarios.
Drought predictions for the region
are expected to be superseded by a new
report, currently with the Ministry of
Agriculture and Forestry.
Extreme rainfall depths are expected
to increase 8 per cent with every 1C
increase in temperature.
Climate change may take large
storms, such as 1988's Cyclone Bola,
away from New Zealand but storms
that do reach our shores are expected to
be more intense.
Regional council scientist Kathleen
Kozyniak says rather than be alarmed
by the predictions, which are subject to
many variables, people could focus on
what positive steps they can take in
For some people that might be reduc-
ing their carbon footprint, for farmers it
might be more efficient water use or
moving to drought resistant crops, she
There are pros and cons in the
A benefit of fewer frosts, for example,
would be the different crops that could
be grown. Increases in summer rainfall
would be beneficial, Dr Kozyniak says.
