Stink error

In the Saturday edition of the Times-Age, a story about an odour coming from Carterton District Council’s [CDC] wastewater treatment plant erroneously included an aerial photograph of CDC’s newly commissioned reservoirs. The source of the smell was not from these reservoirs, but due to an equipment failure at the Dalefield Road wastewater treatment plant, which has since been repaired. We apologise for any confusion the use of this photo may have caused.

Work early
