Samples from beaches and fresh water spots are taken and tested by lab- oratories to assess levels of bacteria. If they are above accepted guidelines set by the Environment Ministry the water may be deemed unsafe to bathers. In this case, health warning signs are erected advising people not to swim or gather shellfish. The areas are retested until the bacteria levels are back within the guidelines. The most recent test results of water samples from all western beaches including Piha, Kare- kare, Huia, Laingholm and Titirangi have come back as safe. The Piha lagoon was the worst affected area last year, and was closed 16 times from November 2009 to January 2010. Wood Bay and Laingholm Bay were closed 10 and 9 times respectively. The main risks to swimming in unsafe water are gastro-bugs that cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea. Ear and eye infections are also a possibility. It pays to check the water quality results before you go swimming. They are at www.auck landcouncil.govt.nz. Permits for open-air fires If you want to light an open-air fire in a rural area this summer you need a permit, the Auck- land Council says. And if you live within 1km of a Department of Conservation reserve, you'll need a permit from DOC too. Restricted fire season starts each year at the beginning of December as fire level dangers increase around this time. It's important that fires are controlled and supervised at all times as the costs involved in putting out all fires may be passed on to the per- son responsible. Call the Auckland Council on 301-0101 for details on fire permits.
