Takapuna Beach, just one of twenty beaches to avoid due to poor water quality
By Te Karere
Auckland's popular Takapuna Beach is closed for swimming after sewage flowed into the water.
Sewage from an overflowing stormwater drain flowed onto the beach yesterday afternoon and the beach was shut down by lifeguards.
Takapuna is one of around 20 beaches where swimming is not advised due to poor water quality.
