Wastewater spill in Five Mile Bay
A wastewater overflow at Mahuta Road pump station at Five Mile Bay occurred this morning.
It's believed an electrical fault disabled the pump station, which has caused wastewater to overflow onto the road and enter the stormwater network, which discharges to the lake.
The quantity of discharge to the lake is unknown at this time. Contractors are on site cleaning up and taking water samples. Signs will also be in place in the affected area.
