City Invests Into Wellington CSO

In case you missed the article in the Spectator today, the city of Hamilton is set to install a $4 million real-time control system to better manage the combined sewage that is currently flowing from the Wellington CSO.

This pipe alone is responsible for annually releasing approximately 340,000 cubic meters of untreated sewage into the bay - that's one third of the storm-fuelled sewage that spills directly into the harbor!
