New Zealand | Dairy seeks OK to dump up to 10M liters of wastewater into proposed MPA each day

A Chinese-owned South Canterbury-based dairy company wants to build a 7.5 kilometre-long pipeline to discharge up to 10 million litres per day of wastewater into the Pacific Ocean.

The application, filed with Environment Canterbury, proposes the pipeline will travel from the Oceania Dairy factory at Glenavy on State Highway 1, about 58km south of Timaru, to the Pacific Ocean coastline, with a 350m long submerged outfall.
