For more than 100 years Tomahawk beach was often contaminated by sewage, but the Dunedin City Council says the inner city beach that was blighted by an ancient sewage system is now clean.
“It is the first time in 100 years that’s the case,” Tahuna outfall project manager Brian Turner said yesterday.
Since the Tahuna outfall pipe was commissioned on January 23, the council had tested water from between Second beach, near the St Clair pool, and Smaills beach.
“To date, it indicates [all] the beaches are safe to swim,” Mr Turner said.
So to the surf dudes protesting about cleaning up the beaches, does this satisfy ya? Poor Bev one less opportunity cost to cling on to. Mind you I don’t think she cares for rational debate any more these days.
