Waiuku Water

Amy (ref Post 06 Feb) check your inlet water washing machine hose at the tap on the wall, I have to clear mine of a build up of salts from the filter about every two months. I have had three plumber call outs in eight years to a) replace two taps in the house, and b) on one visit to […]

Well done Watercare

When we moved to Waiuku in 2006 I really noticed the poor taste and calcification/limescale in the water compared to Auckland’s supply. Since then there has been a gradual improvement to water here and we find it perfectly drinkable now. The calcium build-up on the shower glass and our water jug is practically nil. You can descale both your shower […]

Ongoing saga of Hudsons Beach after floods/storms

Inaction of council with regard to the retaining wall – Residents have been waiting a month for action. Rubbish remains with exposed nails, without the protection of the wall properties continue to be flooded and the erosion is heading towards the road. The longer the wait the more costly for clean up. If something had been done prior to this […]

Solving illegal rubbish dumping

The significant increase in illegal dumping across Auckland comes as no surprise as the city continues to rapidly grow with houses being squeezed onto every available piece of land with tiny sections, leaving people nowhere to store rubbish and inorganic material. The cost of using privately owned transfer stations can also be prohibitively expensive for many on low income being […]

Waiuku water quality

I saw the article in The Post dated 30 January 2018 and I would like to add our concern and unhappiness of the quality of the water. 1. The water is not drinkable and we have to spend money on a water filter. 2. Our washing machine is not washing the clothes properly. 3. We have already replaced water floss […]

Letter: Intersection improvement

The solution to the awful intersection at East Street and Stadium Drive would be to build a roundabout. All the other intersections along the ring road around Pukekohe town centre have roundabouts which work brilliantly. A roundabout also needs to be built at the dangerous busy intersection at Kitchener Road and Collingwood Road in Waiuku as well. B Dover Waiuku

Letters: Improvements possible

I am pleased to read that changes and improvements are possible for the busy intersection at East Street / Stadium Drive. I have twice nearly been hit by vehicles failing to give way coming down the hill on East Street, while driving south along Stadium Drive. A roundabout is very much needed at this intersection to slow traffic down. I […]

Letter: What is that black stuff in my water?

What is that black stuff in my drinking water? I drink about six to eight glasses of water from the tap a day—always have and probably always will. There have been media reports of water problems in Morrinsville due to a broken pipe and in Huntly residents have ongoing concerns with thier water quality from stomach complaints, a chemical smell, […]

Your thoughts on pedestrian crossings

Last week, 23 January 2018, the Post Newspaper had a story on pedestrian safety in Pukekohe. We asked whether more needed to be done to ensure pedestrians safety, and your suggestions on the Stadium Drive/East Street intersection, which is troublesome for drivers and pedestrians alike. Here are some of your thoughts: F. Slee: They shouldn’t be confusing, but for some reason […]

Letter: Untidy lawns

 How long before the eyesore will be tidied around the new childcare centre on corner of Valley Rd & Rossiter Ave. This property has been under operation for such a prolonged time (I understand it has been sold) but still not completed. Very long grass outside the property has been an eyesore over Christmas and New Year, still no lawns […]
