Rodney Times : November 4th 2010
12 RODNEY TIMES, NOVEMBER 4, 2010 NEWS Plans in pipeline Contracts worth $4.8 million enabling develop- ment of a new pipeline providing wastewater servicing to Kumeu- Huapai and Riverhead townships have been let by the Rodney District Council. Four contracts have been let to develop a total of 10.5 kilometres of wastewater pipeline and a pumping station. The pipeline will run from the southern out- skirts of Kumeu and Riverhead, under Brighams Creek and connect to the Watercare wastewater pipeline at Whenuapai. The decision is great news for the residents of western Rodney. It will allow develop- ment in these areas which will bring signifi- cant benefits to local communities, Rodney ward councillor Penny Webster says. The council asked residents, businesses and developers in Kumeu-Huapai and Riverhead to indicate whether they intended to connect to the service by signing up for the new scheme. The community expressed a strong inter- est in the new wastewater service and this support has enabled the council to let the con- tracts for the construc- tion of the pipeline, coun- cil water services group manager Jenny Warren says. Work starts this month and the pipeline will be ready by April 2012. Construction associ- ated with the new pipe- line will create minimal disruption to people liv- ing in western Rodney, the council says. The pipeline cost will be repaid over time through development contributions and con- nection fees. The development of the pipeline was ident- ified as the best way to provide wastewater servicing to Kumeu- Huapai and Riverhead following an extensive review of the other avail- able options and com- munity consultation. Kumeu-Huapai and Riverhead residents use individual on-site wastewater treatment systems. However, clay soils mean that these systems can create environ- mental and health problems in winter. It will become the res- ponsibility of Watercare to oversee the completion of works from this week as they are responsible for public water and wastewater services across the Auckland region.

By DELWYN DICKEY Six rugby fans enjoyed a dinner with All Black coach Graham Henry and Sir Peter Leitch, alias The Mad Butcher, and con- tributed to charity at the same time. The dinner was one of the items up for grabs at a charity event supporting Allergy New Zealand organised by The Mad Butcher and Suburban News- papers Community Trust, with rugby league coaching great Wayne Bennett as guest speaker. Phillip Schmidt on behalf of Wharehine Group at Wellsford put in the winning bid of $2500 for the dinner for six. Wayne Bennett is one of the greatest rugby league coaches of all time, so Graham Henry was the natural choice, says Mr Schmidt, who also chose rugby friends for the dinner. All of us have something to do with the Mahurangi Rugby Club, either as members or with kids there, he says. Mr Schmidt coached at the club last year.
