QUESTION OF THE DAY
Q: What did the earthquakes do to the wastewater ocean pipeline and is it in operation now or not?
A: The ocean outfall has not suffered any damage from the Canterbury earthquakes despite the December 23 quake being relatively close to the pipeline alignment. Dive inspections, sonar surveys and performance testing have been conducted that show the pipe is still on its original alignment and performing in a very similar manner to when it was commissioned.
