Work on Whaanga Coast wastewater scheme progressing well


Construction of the new Whaanga Coast wastewater project is progressing well with 12 properties already connected to the new system and fully operational.

Waikato District Council’s contractor, Spartan Construction, have installed 90 percent of the main sewer line along Wainui Road and Upper Wainui Road with the full scheme scheduled for completion in June.


General Manager Service Delivery Tim Harty says Council is pleased with the progress made throughout the project including the feedback they’ve received for the new scheme from both residents and local iwi.

“We’ve made a determined effort to provide regular updates to property owners and key stakeholders including local iwi throughout the project and this has played a significant role in helping us stay close to our original timeline and delivering the final project within budget.”

Mr Harty says as the project nears completion, property owners who are considering signing up to the new scheme are urged to do so as soon as possible.

“Existing property owners who join the scheme before construction ends will pay a subsidised amount with Council covering 52% of the connection cost. Once the project is complete the offer isn’t available and they’ll need to contribute the full sum.”

Property owners interested in joining the scheme can call Grant Tregidga at Waikato District Council on
0800 492 452.

Gordon Campbell: On The Wage Hike For MPs (and Paul Robeson)

Hard to tell what is more infuriating. Is it the 5.3% increase on the already bloated salaries of MPs, or their pantomime of outrage at being gifted with such a wonderful back-dated bonanza?

As usual, Prime Minister John Key has busily tried to distance himself from the political fallout, even though he happens to be the main beneficiary of the Remuneration Authority’s generosity. Finance Minister Bill English says with a straight face that it would actually be very hard to give the money back...

Even if it were true, it would actually be very easy for English and any other guilty colleagues, to give the extra money away. There are any number of food banks or homeless shelters who would be able to put the money to good use. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Whether NZ Troops Are The Least Of Islamic State’s Problems

Given that it has been politically packaged and sold as a training mission, the Iraq deployment announced yesterday by Prime Minister John Key seemed to be mysteriously short of actual trainers...
