Where the waste goes

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

If you have ever won­dered where the waste goes af­ter you flush the toi­let, then head to the open day at the up­graded Mata­mata Waste­water Treat­ment Plant and find out this Satur­day, April 9, from 11.30am to 2pm.

Any­one in­ter­ested should meet out­side Mata­mata Me­mo­rial Cen­tre, where buses will leave for the treat­ment plant ev­ery half hour.

For health and safety rea­sons, Mata­mata-Pi­ako District Coun­cil asks all vis­i­tors to meet at the cen­tre, rather than go­ing straight to the treat­ment plant.

The coun­cil has com­pleted an up­grade of the plant to en­sure treated waste­water meets the con­di­tions of their lat­est re­source con­sent.

‘‘The up­grade in­cludes some of the lat­est tech­nol­ogy in waste­water treat­ment,’’ said Coun­cil Wa­ter and Waste man­ager James Ross.

‘‘We’re now meet­ing much higher en­vi­ron­men­tal stan­dards, which have a di­rect ben­e­fit to our wa­ter­ways.’’
