Date change for wastewater treatment plant visit

Due to a clash of events and with some regret, the South Wairarapa District Council is rescheduling the community visit to the Greytown and Featherston wastewater treatment plants. The new date the visit will go ahead is Saturday 21 September, from 1pm to 4pm, a week later than previously scheduled.

Council apologises for this change in plan, and hopes those who have already expressed interest can make the new date. It is also hoped that more people will be able to attend the site visit as a result of this change in date. 

Everyone who has already registered for this event will be notified of the date change. 

People interested in visiting the wastewater treatment plants on Saturday 21 September are required to register their interest with Council by emailing ftnwater@swdc.govt.nz or calling (06) 306 9611 (ext 865). The registration deadline is now 12pm on Wednesday 18 September.

Please advise how many people plan on attending, and whether you will be arranging your own transport or requiring seats on the bus to be provided by Council. Further details will be provided to those registered, including where to park private vehicles, and the need to wear suitable footwear.

The purpose of the visit is to demonstrate to residents how the Greytown irrigation system works and give an idea about what to expect with the proposed upgrade of the Featherston Wastewater Treatment Plant. It is hoped the field trip will help answer some of the outstanding questions that have been raised by submitters during the resource consent application process for Featherston.
