Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Premium and alternative nut butters - like Wellington's Fix and Fogg - have some of the highest sales growth at supermarkets nationwide. Have you made the switch to more artisan brands, or would you rather stay with the tried and true?

THE SURPRISE PARTY at Circa Theatre

Sales & Marketing Manager from Circa Theatre

A new summer comedy from Playwright and DomPost columnist Dave Armstrong (The Motor Camp) and directed by Conrad Newport

“The funniest stage-comedy I’ve seen in years…” Simon Sweetman, Off the Tracks

Doug Morris has been the sole MP of his tiny left-wing party for nine years. But when Beehive scandals and social media disasters hit both major parties, Doug and his ragtag list of hopeless candidates – including a bus driver who hates passengers and a transport spokesperson who doesn’t drive – are in serious danger of winning power. Doug is horrified – he knows what they’re like!

Treatment process pipe repairs see increase in truck movements

The Team from Wellington Water

It never rains but it pours – another tricky pipe repair job for our team!

Running between the wastewater treatment plant at Moa Point and the Southern landfill are two pipes that carry a treatment process byproduct, generally known as sludge.

Only one pipe operates at a time, to allow for maintenance, but over the weekend, both pipes suffered damage that meant we couldn’t keep using them.

They’re under very high pressure when they’re operating, so it’s possible that the live pipe disrupted the other one when it failed.

The pipes were expected to last for a good 80 years or more, so we think that some kind of installation or material defect has caused them to stop working.

En route from the treatment plant to the landfill, the pipes pass through a tunnel beneath Mt Albert, and this is where the repair will be carried out.

While we carry out the repairs, trucks will be used to convey sludge from the plant to the landfill. About a million litres of sludge a day is generated at the plant, and trucks may need to operate around the clock from time to time.

A similar repair, also due to a defect in the concrete in which the pipes are embedded, was carried out in 2013 and took about five weeks to complete.

We’ll provide more information on the repair timeline and truck schedule as we learn more.
