The Cyclopedia of New Zealand [Auckland Provincial District]



The very healthy climate of Auckland is perhaps the reason why the drainage of the city has not so far been completed, but there is now in hand a scheme whereby it is hoped to reduce the death rate, which to-day is higher than it should be for a city so situated. Of the city's 1762 acres, an area of about 1100 acres has been well drained with brick and pipe sewers, laid in the streets and gullies. The principal portion yet to be drained is in the Ponsonby Ward, or western end, which is yet but thinly populated.
