The Horowhenua District Council have visited the Hank Edwards toilet block this morning to deal with the problem of water overflowing. Their immediate action has been to close the whole toilet block until further notice.
There’s an overflow pipe which takes overflow water from all the toilets to the septic tank. That pipe has blocked (repeatedly).
The fix isn’t yet clear as to whether it simply needs flushing out again or some more major work involving a new trench, and the various resource consents and so on that go with such work.
We’ll update everyone as soon as we know what the next steps will be.
