Southland District Council (SDC): has applied for a 35 year consent to spray sewage onto land, surrounding the Te Anau Airport, Manapouri.
This spraying of sewage will pollute the air and groundwater of the district. SDC's proposal indicates that there will be many other risk factors
including: bird strike, odour, pipeline rupture from earthquakes and a rates blowout. There are other options that we ought to explore.
