The stink from the Nelson Wastewater Treatment Plant pond at Wakapuaka could soon come to an end.

The council has been approved resource consent to carry out de-sludging on Nelson's sewage ponds. The council's submission said removing the sludge is "considered essential to remedy the odour complaints through creating a much more stable and robust pond environment that will be more resilient and resistant to failure".

The council will put a contract out to tender and work is expected to be carried out next year through autumn and winter to make best use of prevailing offshore winds and minimise any odour.
