Treasurer Issues Direction to fix Leanyer Sewage Ponds

Treasurer and Member for Wanguri Nicole Manison will today issue a Treasurer’s Direction to Power and Water to fix the problems at Leanyer sewage ponds. 

“We have all have put up with this for too long,” she said.

“We need action from Power and Water and that’s why I have issued a Treasurer’s Direction to Power and Water today.

“Power and Water have known about this problem for years, and I have put them on notice to commence working towards a solution to this problem immediately.

“Residents can no longer be asked to put up with it. It’s just not good enough.

“The NT EPA has received around 30 complaints over the past ten days from residents in Leanyer, Muirhead, Lyons, Malak, Anula, Wanguri and Wulagi.

“These complaints have prompted an EPA investigation and the outcomes of that work will be taken very seriously.

“I will make sure Power and Water keep all affected residents up to date with progress.”
