I was walking over the Awa Street hill to Worser Bay the other day, and I found an interesting drain.
An interesting drain?? I really do need to (in the immortal words of William Shatner/Captain Kirk) ... get a life.
Now, the drain is in the road halfway up the hill. So ... does the waste water snake up the hill, then down the hill, and into Worser Bay? Or does it, indeed, gurgle down the hill, across the Miramar flatland straight into the sea at Miramar Wharf ... and cross the waters to Hatiatai Beach where I swim?
Porirua folk, up the line, have been ordered by their council not to wash their cars in their driveways. It has to be on lawn so as waste water from the cleaning products gets absorbed by grass.
This all makes me wonder, what exactly is travelling down the Awa Street drain?
I was so scared that I would be run over by a car when I stepped into the street to quickly snap the photo, I didn't realise my shadow was overlapping the drain. Whoops ...
