Vandals wreak havoc at Kianga Sewage Treatment Plant


NSW Police are investigating deliberate damage to the grounds of Kianga Sewage Treatment Plant.

Vandals have twice scaled the plant’s perimeter fence in the night and sprayed red paint over the buildings and trucks, poured oil over the driveway, and discharged fire extinguishers.

The laundry was broken into and laundry powder and paper towel strewn around the plant.

Staff members were left to clean up the mess and paint.

Council’s Water and Sewer Manager Brett Corven says security measures at the plant will be increased, including extra security patrols of the area by Council’s contractor.

“Staff have also discussed the vandalism with nearby residents and we hope that spreading the word around town might put a stop to it,” he said.

“While it’s frustrating and costly to see our plant vandalised, we’re also concerned for the safety of whoever is doing this. There’s a reason why treatment plants are fenced.”

This is the third community asset to be damaged by vandals in a matter of weeks, with the playing fields at Tuross Head’s Kyla Park Oval destroyed by hoons and a mural at North Broulee defaced with graffiti.

Residents with information about any of these incidents should contact their local police station or call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000 Media Release
