NOTICE OF WATERFOWL MANAGEMENT PROGRAMME
We undertake a waterfowl management programme at the Te Kuiti Wastewater Treatment Plant (TKWWTP) as part of the Resource Consent.
During this time of year, there is a large duck and swan population that congregates on the ponds at the TKWWTP. This is an undesirable habitat for waterfowl because of the immediate risk to bird health from avian botulism, and the risk of disease transmittal to other nesting or feeding areas.
Council will soon commence a programme using an acoustic deterrent device, to discourage the waterfowl from populating the pond. The loud bang created by the device may be heard randomly but should not cause concern, as it is harmless. The device is not used overnight and on weekends.
This programme runs annually from November to March.

While undertaking this work, WDC will make every effort to minimise the impact on supply. In the event that temporary deterioration of your water quality occurs due to flushing in your street, it is advisable to first run your garden tap then the others for several minutes to remove any air bubbles and to restore water clarity. Please do not run water through in house filters before taps are running clear.
