STREAM AFFECTED BY EF­FLU­ENT

The Invercargill Eye - - WHAT? WHEN? WHERE? -

En­vi­ron­ment South­land com­pli­ance staff are in­ves­ti­gat­ing an in­ci­dent in the Ben­more area where a sig­nif­i­cant vol­ume of ef­flu­ent has been dis­charged to a trib­u­tary feed­ing the Win­ton Stream. The pub­lic are ad­vised to avoid con­tact with wa­ter in the stream. South­land Dis­trict Coun­cil en­vi­ron­men­tal health man­ager Michael Sar­faiti said there is a low risk from the ef­flu­ent dis­charge, be­cause it’s un­likely peo­ple will be in the wa­ter at this time of the year.
