Modellers pond

Nelson Mail - - COMMENT&OPINION -

If the pond could get a de­cent amount of sea­wa­ter, the slimy weed would even­tu­ally die, and the pond would be back to how it was years ago

My pro­posal is to run a 300mm poly­thene pipe from the blind chan­nel di­rect to the modellers pond. Costs of the pipe would be con­sid­er­ably less than the $1.2 mil­lion es­ti­mated. With cost over­runs that fig­ure will end up closer to $2m.

A sub­stan­tial pump would be re­quired, this could be housed in a tilt panel small build­ing close to The Modellers Club rooms, for power sup­ply.

The coun­cil may have to re lo­cate the Cen­ten­nial Rd , storm wa­ter out­let, there is plenty of room on the mud­flat.

The modellers pond in Tahu­nanui needs a fix. The ques­tion is, what would that be and at what cost to the Nel­son City Coun­cil and ratepay­ers?
