Anyone wanting to give feedback on the Christchurch City Council’s options for dealing with treated wastewater from Akaroa needs to do so this week.

Consultation closes at midnight on Sunday 23 August.

Christchurch City Council has put forward four options. One is to continue discharging the treated wastewater into the harbour and the other three are to use the highly treated wastewater to irrigate new areas of native trees at various sites on Banks Peninsula.

Information outlining the options is available online at ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay and printed booklets can be picked up at any Council service centre or library.

Submissions can be made online or by filling out the form at the back of the booklet and posting it. Please ensure contact details are included as the Council does not accept anonymous submissions.

Anyone wanting more information can contact senior engagement advisor Tara King at tara.king@ccc.govt.nz.
