Saving the Omaru Creek

IMG_2113.JPGThe Omaru Creek is located in a suburb in east Auckland called Glen Innes. It is infested with rubbish, fat and polluted water. The residents of Glen Innes disposed baby wipes, mattress springs and household rubbish into this creek. Furthermore, cooking fats were poured down kitchen sinks resulting in blockages.

IMG_2129.JPGThere was an overflow in the Omaru Creek so a Maintenance crew from Auckland Council was called they identified and solved the  problem. They cleared out the blockage, removed all of the rubbish and also flushed the stream with clean fresh water.  Now Glen Innes School needs to play their part in helping the community by cleaning up the stream and making sure that this never happens again.
