Whaanga Coast Wastewater Project Out for Tender

Whaanga Coast Wastewater Project Out for Tender

The Waikato District Council has put the Whaanga Coast wastewater project out for public tender with tenders closing on 7 March 2013.

Once the tender period closes, there will be an evaluation of tenderers and then subject to pricing, the contract will be awarded in late March.

The wastewater scheme will cover 120 existing dwellings located along the Whaanga Coast. Sixty six existing property owners have signed on to the scheme following consultation, this includes the two public toilets.

Background:
Whale Bay and the Whaanga Coast presently don’t have a reticulated wastewater system. In 2004, in response to concerns raised by residents and the Waikato Regional Council, investigations showed that the majority of on-site systems were not working, and were causing run-off into neighbouring properties and into waterways.

After extensive consultation a scheme was developed which will be paid for by the property owners with general rate funding assistance.

The Whaanga Coast wastewater project will see storage tanks and pumps installed at individual properties and waste will be pumped to the existing wastewater treatment plant at Raglan.


The plant has sufficient capacity to deal with this additional flow.

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
