We are currently working on cleaning out the wastewater treatment ponds so we can start building the new treatment plant.
This involves transferring and removing sludge, a process which will cause odours at times in parts of the district.
The settling pond is now empty and going through a final clean and liner inspection to get it ready to take the dewatered and stabilised sludge from the main pond. (Click image to view a larger version).
On 30 August 2013, the Council approved moving to detailed design and tender documentation for an upgraded wastewater treatment plant. More details are available here...
This page provides information about what's happening and the work we are doing to upgrade the plant, as well as minutes of Council meetings.

Wanganui District Council is working through a process to identify potentially earthquake-prone buildings (EQPB) and notify the owners of those buildings about their responsibilities. Read more...
Following detailed assessments of our buildings, we have placed notices on Council-owned earthquake-prone buildings to advise the public of the EQPB assessment. Read more...
We are currently considering options for the affected buildings and discussing them with the occupants before the Council makes any decisions about potential interim measures or medium to long term solutions. It is important to note that the ratings apply to a very specific risk (earthquakes) and the buildings are not dangerous under normal conditions.
