All shook up

Central Otago Mirror - - WANAKA NEWS -

The ground was shak­ing in Wanaka on Sun­day night af­ter an earthquake struck 40 kilo­me­tres west of Twizel. The mag­ni­tude 4 earthquake had a depth of 42km and struck just be­fore 10.10pm.


The De­part­ment of Con­ser­va­tion will be lay­ing 1080 poi­son in the Dart, Route­burn and Caples val­leys from Au­gust 25, weather per­mit­ting, not July 25 as stated in last week’s Mir­ror. We apol­o­gise for any con­fu­sion.

Build­ing no prob­lem

The coun­cil has no con­cerns with another build­ing in the South­ern Lakes de­signed by engi­neer Tony Ma­jor. In­ver­cargill-based Ma­jor, who de­signed Sta­dium South­land and the Wanaka pool, was ex­pelled last month from the In­sti­tute of Pro­fes­sional En­gi­neers for a breach of ethics. When the Wanaka pool was closed last month, chief ex­ec­u­tive Adam Fee­ley said a sec­ond coun­cil build­ing was also be­ing checked but, last week, spokes­woman Michele Poole said the sec­ond build­ing was pri­vately owned. ‘‘The sec­ond build­ing that was men­tioned by Adam two weeks ago is pri­vately owned. The coun­cil has now dis­counted any con­cerns with that build­ing,’’ she said. The Wanaka pool re­mains closed.
