Both the Napier and the Hastings Airsheds have been divided up into two Airzones, referred to as Airzone 1 and Airzone 2. Airzone 1 generally covers the urban areas of Hastings, Flaxmere, Havelock North and Napier and are those areas most affected by small particulate (PM10) contaminants. Airzone 2 covers the remaining areas within the Napier and Hastings airsheds. Districts refer to Airsheds. Whirinaki and Awatoto are currently excluded.
