Good plumbing is the foundation of civilization

A lack of proper sewage systems in the Far North is leading to disease, pollution and contaminated shellfish.

This needs government attention now. We should not be tolerating third-world sewage systems in New Zealand. If the local district council can't carry the cost, then it's time for the government to step in and help them out. The $70 million required is chump change compared to the size of the surplus.
