While the Hastings and Napier Councils don’t seem to agree on much these days, BayBuzz has found one point of convergence … they’re both quite happy to dump sludge (aka ‘biomass’) into Hawke’s Bay.

As we reported awhile back in Race to the bottom, Mayor Arnott has moved far away from the days (way back in 2005) when she advocated removing 99.9% of Napier’s sewage from its discharge into the Bay.

Here is the Hasting Council (or NCC, take your pick) preparing for its latest public briefing on the new BTF (biological trickling filter) sewage ‘treatment’ plant …

So much for two councils upping each other’s game!
