The specific provision of the plan change/modification that my submission relates to:
Any reference to disposal of sewage
The reason for our views is:
We do not want disposal of sewage from Matakana into our fragile harbour catchment (Whangateau) as there is no adequate research showing this is environmentally safe especially if Matakana continues to develop.
It is already clear that the receiving environment cannot cope with existing effluent.
We seek the following decision from the council:
If the plan change/modification is not declined, then amend it as outlined below
Return all treated sewage from Omaha to the Matakana catchment
