Taihape Hautapu River

July 14, 2020

During the weekend the Council received a complaint that human waste was being discharged into the Hautapu River.

Council is aware of the significance of any waste discharge into its rivers so immediately acted on this complaint and undertook an investigation. The result was there was no evidence of human waste coming from the pump station, Council’s telemetry systems also indicated the system was operating normally.

Council is working with Horizons Regional Council and will continue its investigations into the cause of the waste discharge.
