Sewage spill into Heathcote

I see on page A3 of The Press today there is a report of an overflow of wastewater into the Heathcote.  392 cubic metres of “treated wastewater” overflowed from the Beckford St pumping station.

This sort of pollution is routine after heavy rain.  In a December 2008 survey conducted by URS, 76% of Christchurch residents surveyed made it very clear that the CCC should spend as much as it took to prevent sewage flowing into our rivers.  The CCC needs to clean up its act and bring forward the spending required to stop these overflows.
