The wastewater pipe which was damaged on Sunday afternoon has been fixed.

The pump station is now back in operation and the vacuum trucks are no longer required.

Residents of several streets in the Hamilton suburb of Glenview are asked to still be mindful of their wastewater discharges as the council monitor the repairs after a landslip damaged a main pipe.

Hamilton City Council's City Waters Manager Maire Porter said about 200 properties are affected by the issue, caused by a slip in the Mangokotukutuku Gully.

The slip has damaged what is termed an aerial wastewater rising main – a large wastewater pipe running above the ground – which transfers wastewater from the Bruce Ave pump station.

The Bruce Ave pump station collects wastewater from more than 200 properties around the neighbourhood, and transfers it to another part of the city's wastewater network.

A specialist team is on site today repairing the wastewater pipe which transfers wastewater from the Bruce Ave pump station.

A number of vacuum trucks have continued to operate through the night and today to transport wastewater to other pump stations in the city.

Hamilton City Council's City Waters Manager Maire Porter said she appreciates the support from residents.

"We're working hard to get this pipe repaired and hope to have it done in the next day or two," Ms Porter said.

"We would also ask people to keep an eye out for our vacuum trucks as they continue to remove and transport all wastewater to other pump stations."

"We'll be investigating the cause of the pipe dislodgement, but at this stage it appears a slip on private property on one side of the gully has dislodged the pipe."
