Police are investigating after a car was found rolled in Shakespeare Rd at 1.30am on Monday.
Emergency services attended and the vehicle was found unattended. Further inquiries are being made to establish what occurred.
The storage current capacity for dried sewage sludge at the Whanganui Wastewater Treatment Plant will last another two or three years, Whanganui District Council senior wastewater engineer Tony Hooper says.
The chromium content of the sludge, from Tasman Tanning's wastewater, is too high for the sludge to be safely applied to land.
When its chromium level lowers the sludge could be used to produce a saleable compost, Hooper said.
If it cannot be lowered the council could either dig another hole to store it or truck it to Hampton Downs Landfill in the Waikato, and which would be "by far the most expensive option".
