Efforts To Keep Odour Down

Media statement 20 August 2001
All efforts are being made by the Christchurch City Council to minimise the odour from the Waste Water Treatment Plant at Bromley.
The station is half-way through a $33.7 million upgrade and some odour is escaping at present because one of the trickling filters needs to be taken out of service so that new connections can be made to the pipe feeding it.
This could take a few weeks but the Council’s Water and Waste Unit’s Operations and Maintenance Manager, Mike Bourke, says every effort is being made to minimise the odour but unfortunately it will be present in parts of the east of the city for several weeks.
Other odour releases are expected at times as more changes are made to the treatment plant.
This capacity up-grade is expected to be finished in 2006.
