The rubbish soup that has engulfed the Lake Pupuke Quarry Reserve is a serious health haz- ard, a Waitemata DHB staff member says. Waitemata District Health Board director of communications Paul Patton works in an office block bordering the quarry and says not only is the rubbish an eyesore but a health concern for those swimming in the lake. Auckland Council is tasked with cleaning the area but Mr Patton says this has become more ir- regular since the super- city was introduced. Auckland Council ma- nager of local and sports parks north Martin van Jaarsveld says the amount of litter in parks corresponds directly to the numbers of people using them. He says during the summer months fixed bins are emptied up to three times a day. Parks officers, ran- gers and the various groups who regularly use the lake monitor its con- dition and it is cleaned periodically on a when- required basis.'' No complaints have been made from the pub- lic, Mr van Jaarsveld says, although since re- ceiving our request for comment officers were sent to assess the area. Parks contractors have been asked to carry out a thorough litter cleanup to the lake and its surrounds,'' he says. The quarry is open to the public for swimming and other recreational activities. The Northern Canoe Polo Association and the North Shore Radio Yacht Squadron are regular users of the site. Auckland Council asks that everyone using the area cleans up after themselves using the bins provided or by tak- ing their rubbish home.
