Council provides a domestic sewage and industrial wastewater collection, screening and disposal system to maintain the community's health and protect the envoronment. The system services the main City area but does not include Meeanee, Jervoistown, residential Awatoto, Bay View and Poraiti, (a system for Bay View has been installed in some areas).
Council is committed to providing advanced sewage treatment, and a Biological Trickling Filter (BTF) plant was commissioned in August 2014.
Note: Blockages up to the Council main are the responsibility of the property owner and a Plumber/Drain Layer should be contacted. Council is only responsible for blockages of the Sewer Main caused by faulty pipes. Check with your neighbours, if they also have a blockage then it is likely to be a blockage of the Council's sewer main.
