The harbour will not be cleared for fishing until 3 April and collection of seafood cannot resume until 24 April.
While this means it is safe for the public to enjoy the harbour again, warning signs to prevent the taking of seafood will remain in place until the dates given.
Waikato District Council General Manager Service Delivery Tim Harty says, “The Council wants to extend its thanks to the Raglan community for their patience in this matter. An investigation into the cause of the spill is underway and our findings will be shared once it’s completed.”
