Bylaw 229 Wastewater Including Trade Waste and Domestic Wastewater

The Wastewater Bylaw (No. 229) came into operation 15 September 2021.

The purpose of the bylaw is to protect the health and safety of the public from the potential adverse effects of harmful substances discharged into the wastewater system. It regulates trade waste and domestic wastewater, and manages and protects our infrastructure.

Copies of the Bylaw are available at Civic House 110 Trafalgar Street and the Nelson, Stoke and Tahunanui Libraries. You can also download the bylaw below.
