Gradshow6 Call for high standards in wastewater policy By LIZ WILLIS North Shore residents won't stomach being told they have to endure more frequent sewage overflows in the future, councillor Ann Hartley says. Watercare told Auck- land councillors it might be too expensive to intro- duce North Shore's high standards across Auck- land. The council controlled organisation looks after Auckland's wastewater and water networks but is still accountable to the new Auckland Council. North Shore ward councillors Ann Hartley and George Wood say they will fight for the North Shore standards to be the norm through- out Auckland. Safe disposal of waste- water is the most funda- mental health issue, says Mrs Hartley. I think people's expectations should be high. We all swim in the same sea, everybody needs the same stan- dard.'' In the past, after rain- fall you could see waste- water on beaches like Takapuna but North Shore has addressed the problem over the past 20 years, says Mrs Hartley. The major drive to tackle the problem started when George Wood was elected mayor, she says. Mrs Hartley says for years the Auckland City Council hasn't addressed the problem. Watercare director Graeme Hawkins told councillors it would cost billions to fix a key part of the problem. This would involve building a central inter- ceptor to collect sewage from western parts of Auckland City and pipe it directly to the Mangere treatment plant. Mrs Hartley says cost issues need to be addressed but major infrastructure projects like this are covered by long-term loans. Time to support parade The Devonport Christ- mas parade is coming up and organisations are being asked to take part. There is a Devonport Lions cup to be awarded to the winning float in the parade. A craft market and children's toy sale will also be on the corner of the Windsor Reserve from 10am to 3pm on Sunday, December 5. After the parade there will be a Dance in the Park event. The parade will assemble in Clarence St and Anne St from 10am onwards. It will be mov- ing off at 11am. To confirm your organ- isation's support and an idea of how many people will be taking part along with the proposed activity, email Cliff Heywood at cliff.hey firstname.lastname@example.org.
