Help us protect the Fiordland National Park and the visitors to Lake Manapouri by supporting our Environment Court appeal.
Fiordland Sewerage Options Incorporated is a group who is attempting to offer a more financial and environmentally friendly solution to the Southland District Council (SDC) proposed Te Anau sewerage scheme. The group registered as an official non-profit organization: 18th Aug 2014.
We believe that the proposed solution from the Southland District Council to build and maintain a 19km pipe to pump sewage from Te Anau to the Manapouri Airport and disperse the sewage on land just above Lake Manapouri is a disaster waiting to happen and could endanger the health of residents and tourists alike. There is also a potential risk of losing the World Heritage listing for the park due to river and lake pollution. This could result in millions of dollars lost from tourism as well as Public Health concerns.
We have independent expert reports confirming that there are better financial and environmental solutions.
These solutions have been presented to the Southland District Council through mediation without success.
So now we are taking the legal path, and require your support to help fund the environment court.
Please help us protect this beautiful region so you and your children can continue to enjoy it.
Every cent donated will go directly to the environment court appeal.
