Wastewater inspections underway


Wednesday 22 March, 2017

Ashburton District Council is busy assessing its forward work programmes, with work now underway to inspect wastewater infrastructure in Ashburton and Methven.

Council is inspecting pipes in Ashburton and Methven with CCTV cameras which show what condition the wastewater pipes are in. Work is starting today, Wednesday 22 March and is expected to be completed around Thursday 13 April – weather permitting.

“Council routinely checks our infrastructure to ensure it is in proper working order. It also allows us to determine our forward working programme, should parts of the infrastructure require maintenance,” Council Assets Manager Andrew Guthrie says. 

Inspections are taking place in various streets in the Allenton and Netherby areas of Ashburton, before starting in Methven. Property occupiers in the affected streets will be notified directly prior to the works in their street.
