Stop pouring poo in our rivers


The extremely dodgy Hawkes Bay Regional Council have taken their eye off the ball and have let the Central Hawkes Bay District Council waste ten years and not build a sewerage system that pours poo into our rivers.

Sources in Hawkes Bay say that there was a private Environment Court case bought against the CHBDC in 2004, which gave Central Hawkes Bay 10 years to stop pouring poo into the rivers.

Central Hawkes Bay did almost nothing and then panicked near the end of the consent and built a half arsed solution that does not work.

HBRC group manager resource management Iain Maxwell said his council did not play any part in the final selection of the wastewater treatment option or its design, and its role was now to ensure CHBDC met the required standards.  

He said it was too early to know whether a full prosecution against CHBDC was warranted.

This council was too tight to build a proper sewerage treatment system, yet was willing to invest millions buying water from the Dodgy Socialist Dam.

The Central Hawkes Bay District Council is a disgrace and the mayor and councillors should resign for failure to do their job properly.

What is worse is the Hawkes Bat Regional Council are just as bad, here they are policing one council when their own proposals would see even higher nutrient levels, essentially turning the Tukituki River toxic.

They are all just more reasons we need recall elections for our halfwit local body politicians.
