  • Prolonged heavy rainfall has caused five sewage overflows from the water network in Inglewood.
  • We had almost double the average February monthly rainfall in Inglewood on Saturday and Sunday (235mm).
  • The wastewater overflows happened in Konini, Kauri, Puriri and Koromiko streets on Sunday.
  • The oxidation ponds also overflowed.
  • The overflows from the streets went into a stormwater pipe and then into a tributary of the Waiongana Stream in Konini Street.
  • We’re sorry this has occurred and we’ve been in touch with iwi and hapū, Taranaki Regional Council, the Taranaki District Health Board and other recreational users.
  • Warning signs have gone up advising people not to swim or gather kai (for 28 days) in affected areas.
  • Keep up with the latest information on the Can I Swim page on our website.
  • We are investing $248m over 10 years to fix the district’s plumbing. Part of this includes investigating and designing a long-term wastewater fix for the Konini Street area of Inglewood.
