Drill rig at Motat
Auckland families are invited to learn about ‘‘What’s going on under your feet’’ when Watercare undertakes geotechnical investigations at the Museum of Transport and Technology next week. Visitors to Motat will have the opportunity to see a geotechnical drill rig in action, watch earth samples being extracted and learn fun facts about preparing for water and wastewater construction projects. The work begins on February 17 and are expected to take a week to complete. The investigations will help Watercare plan for future improvements to the wastewater network by identifying the types of earth and rock that lie up to 30 metres underground.
