Wastewater overflow in Lansdowne gutters

Wastewater was flowing down the gutters of Hinau Place in Lansdowne yesterday morning after recent rain exacerbated a sewer blockage. One Lansdowne resident said he reported the incident to Masterton District Council [MDC] shortly before 10am after he saw wastewater and tissue paper overflowing from a manhole in the middle of the road. He said MDC told him several other people had already contacted the council about the issue. City Care contractors attended the scene equipped with a high-pressure jet that they used to clear the blockage. MetService recorded 41.4mm of rainfall in Masterton over the weekend; a rain watch was in place from 6pm Saturday until 6pm Sunday. PHOTO/FLYNN NICHOLLS
