Rivers and beaches
Following the heavy rainfall brought to Nelson by Ex-Cyclone Gita, we advise not to swim at the beach or in the river for 48 hours after rain, as surface run-off could be a health risk.
It is up to residents to source their own to protect their properties. The materials for sandbags can be purchased from your local hardware or landscape supplier. Black rubbish bags filled with sand also proved to be effective during the recent storm surge event.
Nelson City Council will be available 24 hours a day on 03 546 0200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If there is a serious danger to people and you need assistance urgently, please call 111.
