Sewage problems

23 July 2009 18:30

The drainage of the sewage pipes is a long tragedy. There are always some problems with freezing or moving soil. Despite the efforts in previous years, this year the tundra in front of our house is destroyed for the third time in ten years, to gain access to the pipes. I has been a big mistake, not to plan this pipe inside the road, but to go for a straight connection over the tundra. On paper Ny-Ålesund is a green environment. In reality we look more like a gravel pit again. And again, we hope that this will be a permanent solution.

Here you can see the boxes, which contained the sewage and waterpipes in the old days. They are still in use along the road to the airport.
