Overflow into Mangati Stream due to fallen tree
A fallen tree and broken concrete have caused a sewer overflow into Bell Block’s Mangati Stream this morning.
The discharge started just after 9am and lasted two hours.
The incident occurred after a fallen tree damaged a manhole lid, leading to broken concrete and a branch blocking the manhole. The site has been cleaned and sanitised by NPDC.
We’re sorry this has occurred and we’ve been in touch with iwi and hapū, Taranaki Regional Council, the local health authority and other recreational users.
Warnings to not swim or collect kai have been erected at affected water bodies. The location of signage and other current water quality warnings can be viewed on Council’s Can I Swim Webpage.
We are investing $248m over 10 years to fix the district’s plumbing.
