|APPLICATION NUMBERS:||RM165114, RM165115, and RM165116|
|APPLICANT:||Nelson Regional Sewerage Business|
|LOCATION:||Coastal Pipeline Route and pump stations at Wakatu Industrial Estate, Saxton Street, Songer Street and Nelson Airport|
Resource consent is sought for discharge permits to discharge to land, Coastal Marine Area (Waimea Estuary) and Air from accidental wastewater overflow from four pump stations located on the edge of Waimea Inlet, and from the pipework or pipeline fittings that make up the infrastructure of the Nelson Regional Sewerage Business Unit network. The discharges arise as a result of emergency overflows from the pump stations and/or accidental discharges from pipeline failures or leakage. More specifically, the applicant seeks consent for the following types of discharges:
- Overflow discharges which occur as a result of excess flow (for example due to a heavy rain event)
- Overflow discharges due to failure to pump (for example due to equipment failure)
- Accidental discharges, which occur principally due to the accidental rupturing or leakage from pipework or pipeline fittings
- Associated discharges of odour
The discharges are of largely untreated (screened) municipal sewage. Overflow discharges occur intermittently at the Nelson Airport, Saxton Street, Songer Street and Whakatu pump stations. Discharges occur either directly to the coastal marine area (Nelson Airport and Songer Street pump stations) or to land and then the coastal marine area (Whakatu and Saxton Street pump stations).
