    Default Christchurch Wastewater Plant

    I am across the estuary and kms away from the wastewater plant and have all windows and doors shut again today, the stench is truly sickening and seeps inside. Luckily it isn't every day here. I feel for all those living close to the plant and have been suffering this situation for months. I'm not sure how the $200 offer from the ChCh City Council will be of any help to them. With the "multi-use arena" blowout of another $150m to the original $533 I'm guessing the coffers are getting empty.

    And who from the council makes up this rubbish from the weather forecast for today. "The smell from the wastewater treatment plant will be dissipated significantly, and only likely to be smelt by nearby residents directly south of the facility".

    Can't smell it at the moment, I'm in Woolston, we get whiffs quite often, it can also be smelt all the way over in Sydenham some days in yucky bursts of sewerage smells.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Think of the people who work there...ick.

    I just bought some stuff - Chlorine Dioxide or DX50....good for plants as well as a rather nifty disinfectant. Sure not cheap, but interestingly on back, among the list of things it's used for - it removes Mangnese from the water.

    Hey Hawkes Bay Council, why not use it...(other than the cost I guess)

    i remember working on places in rosedale auckland, that was pukesville.
    i would be wanting a good ventilation system with carbon filters to keep that smell out.
    Tweak it till it breaks

    Despite all of the above Christchurch Council is still planning to spend money on a new sports /Events stadium-$650mill -$150mill extra since last costs forecast. I am a long-term rugby fan but this seems ridiculous to giver this a priority rating -compared to Wastewater and DHB costs problems causing deferred closing of Maternity Centre. Bring on online voting so many of these self centred Councilors can be "given the boot"

    I am in Sydenham, and rarely smell it, but my Plastic Surgeon, who lives in Merivale gets it when the wind is blowing from the East, as it does frequently.
