It’s good to see this being done, not just because it’s needed, but because under Mahutacorp we doubt Waikanae will get much if any attention.

(Message from the council)

Contractors are about to start a $1.48 million 12-month upgrade of the stormwater system in Waikanae Beach. They’re installing larger underground stormwater pipes through the reserves between Huiawa and Rauparaha Streets, which will reduce the likelihood of flooding after heavy rain.
