Tokaanu Sewer Maintenance URGENT
Along SH 41 Tokaanu, 150m south of the SH41/Atutahi St intersection, a hole has appeared filled with dark smelly water. The location is between Eddie Kumeroa,s house and the intersection, on the Tokaanu village side of the highway.
In a previous life I was manager of that sewer system.
I suspect that the Taokaanu Main Pressure sewer main has developed a leak in the AC pipe and intermittently as the main Tokaanu pump station pumps wastewater towards Turangi - raw wastewater from the pipe has blown a hole to the ground surface and is entering the adjacent wetland.
It needs urgent check out, to at least eliminate that this is, or is not, the cause.
It’s been there approx a week now.
