Wet wipes and cloths are continuing to cause blockages in Riverton’s waste water system.

The issue was raised at Southland District Council’s Services and Assets Committee meeting yesterday during the presentation of the July 2020 Downer Water Report.

Councillor John Douglas said a “multi-pronged” approach needed to be applied to address the issue.

“We need to get [the public] aware and educated around the pitfalls that they are causing in our network.”
