Auckland business owners complained of foul smells, sewage, for months before sewer line collapse

The collapse of a sewerage pipe below Saint Georges Bay Road came as no surprise to Parnell business owners, who say they have been putting up with foul smells and sewage on their properties for months.

Some Auckland beaches were closed on Wednesday following the collapse of a central Auckland sewer line that created a large sinkhole and resulted in a massive sewage overflow pouring into Waitemata Harbour.

Wellington Water on burst pipe: ‘We’ll always see failures in this type of network’

A burst water pipe in Wellington CBD has now been fixed but Wellington Water says it can’t say a similar event won’t happen again.

…and don’t forget the poisoning of Queenstown…

Lack of water treatment highlights urgency of Three Waters reforms – mayor

…the glorious irony of Queenstown, the wealthy playground of NZ who are such arseholes they can never manage to find accomodation for the plebs they use as cheap labour, is choking on poisoned water from the agricultural industry!

Oh the lols.

Where’s your hatred for 3 Waters now clowns?

Where’s all your screams about co-governance and Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaori get too much race baiting rhetoric now you muppets?

Our water system is under immense stress from mass immigration p[olcies that no one wants to pay the infrastructure upgrades for and mass dairy intensification no one wants to stop!

But remind me how it’s all about the Māori’s getting too much!

There are two wars going on right now over water, and because this country is dumb as fuck thanks to a steady diet of intellectual mediocrity via Seven Sharp and The Project, you have no idea what they are.

The first war over Water is being conducted as a culture war. “Da Bloody Maaaaaaaris is stealing da water”! is the battle cry of these slack jowled redneck crackers. They never acknowledge that it was John Key selling 49% of the Hydro Assets that triggered Māori going to the Waitangi Tribunal and the Waitangi Tribunal agreed with Māori that they do have an interest in water and that it was the State’s responsibility to negotiate that interest with Māori. 3 Waters is the culmination of that interpretation of the Tribunals legal ruling, trying to concoct a Qanon conspiracy that the Māori elite are taking over is as stupid as it is stupid.

The culture war is where Groundswell and the new Stop Co-Governance racist redneck crackers are crucial, they are the foot soldiers who ring Talkback, write letters and refer to Cindy a lot on Social Media.

The second war over water is the economic political one. This is where the actual battle over water access, pricing and regulation is being fought. This is where Federated Farmers and Fonteera are fighting.

The dark money to fund the first fight is coming from wealthy cliques and individuals within the Agribusiness elites because they know if they win the culture war on this, they can continue polluting and making money.

There is no Māori conspiracy, just corporate interests manipulating your petty bigotry.

You don’t realise this because we have Seven Sharp and The Project keeping you dumb, and thanks to that brain meat mediocrity, the culture war grifters keep winning.

You are so easy to manipulate Nu Zilind, just tell a white bloke that a Māori bloke is getting something they aren’t and they will allow any interest to fuck them over!

  1. Obviously WaterCare have not been keeping Auckland’s Infrastructure up to First World Standards ???

    Another Auckland Super City F**k Up, thanks to ACT and Rodney Hide.

    • Or perhaps we could vlame tge Labour mayors who have been in charge for the vast bulk of time since the supercity was formed.

  2. A Code Brown Alert!
    Auckland era has been paying water waste charges for 30+ years for the upgrading and maintenance of the pipes! So where has all that money gone? Down the drain? Or in some vanity project in the leafy burbs?

    • The demands caused by increased immigration and population stresses have well out-paced the ability of that system to maintain.
      A blind man should have been able to see that the combination of neoliberal policies of shrinking net public investment in infrastructure per head and vastly increased population stress will ultimately lead to collapse.

      As usual, the magical free-market fairy riding to the rescue is nowhere to be seen.

  3. Vote for nats, act and nz first at your peril. Too many NZers have short memories and are bloody ungrateful of our covid response. Racism is on the rise and it needs to be called out breaking into someone’s house is disgusting. Who ever did this needs to be found and prosecuted severely send a message this is no acceptable. Neither is the assault on the labour candidate in Inglewood.

  4. As a sometime critic of the various political illiterates, trolls, and general fuckwits that post here with one sentence contributions…I am kinda joining their ranks…once only offer…on the Parnell Sink hole

    LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL

    If “Parnhell” as Metro Magazine tabbed it in the 80s, can have infrastructure collapses just like the poorer ’hoods, might it be wake up time? 3 waters was significantly about crumbling, dangerous or limited infrastructure–which right wingers could not bring themselves to acknowledge. Heh, even Queenstown has had a dose of “crypto” and everyone is now on bottled water–hope the van sleeping service workers can afford it.

  5. Probably didn’t go into the Water Care Accounts, just went into the General Fund for increased salaries for the overpaid Executives warming the seats in the Council Chambers ???

  6. As far as Aucklands woes go we can blame the Labour mayors Len Brown amd Phil Goff who appear to have been asleep at the wheel over the last decade plus…

    • Most of Auckland’s infrastructure woes go back to the post-WW2 period when the First Labour government’s plans for a high-density city built around rail transport hubs was torn up by the National Party to reward their road builder, land-banker, property developer, car importer and oil company donors and cronies. That’s a major part of how we got insanely expensive sprawl and perpetual fiscal constraints that have prevented adequate infrastructure maintenance and refresh.

    • Cricklewood, what exactly did the other mayors do to expedite rebuilding the city’s aged infrastructure that the Labour mayors didn’t?

  7. 3 waters is potentially a good idea so why bundle it up with co governance and turn it into a bad idea, I don’t get it, unless it was some weird way of preventing future privatisation maybe

    • Because the Waitangi Tribunal has said that Maori have an interest in water..

      And frankly, I’m OK with that because I don’t think their default behaviour will be rent-seeking. And if they do turn out to be Maori capitalists who default to rent-seeking and unearned wealth extraction like non-Maori business people, then that’s just the equality of opportunity to exploit. And then we’ll need to stop it whoever does it.

    • Daniel. The whole lack of transparency of Ardern’s government, with secret agendas like the massive Te Puapua tome, probably helped fuel water issues into being a race issue- and yet another divisive diversionary dynamic.

  8. Cricket wood that’s the first thing Winnie will do when he is foreign minister.

    Remove Mallard and x Auckland Mayor Goff from there cushy taxpayer funded overseas holiday homes. To come home to clean up the sewers mess they left.

    • Marco + Battler Indeed. Mallard and Goff being rewarded for being mediocre lackeys is sickening, and a kick in the teeth to diligent responsible citizens. Trevor Mallard’s role in escalating the Parliamentary Protest should exclude him from the company of the good and the wholesome. Ireland deserves better, and so do we.
