Blocked sewage pipe causes overflow in Waitara

  • A sewer line blocked by fat & rags caused wastewater to overflow from a stormwater drain on Atkinson Street Waitara, into the Waitara River.
  • NPDC has cleared the blockage and stopped the overflow.
  • We are installing warning signs against swimming, and gathering kai in the area.
  • Additional investigations into the blockage & the extent of the overflow will take place.
  • 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 recreational users.
  • 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.
