Environment Canterbury (ECan) is investigating the curious state of Saltwater Creek.

Residents phoned the pollution hotline after seeing it turning an "oily colour" early yesterday.

A spokesperson said it was yet to determine what had caused the discolouration. "We thank the people who've rung us to let us know, as we rely on the public to be our eyes and ears."
