Bell Road wastewater works
We are continuing investigations via CCTV as we determine the best option for permanent repair. We’ve installed specialist quiet bypass pumps which will be in operation until a long term solution is in place.
Last night, Wellington Water crews responded to a blockage in a wastewater pipe beneath Waiwhetū Stream near Bell Road in Hutt City. We began a pumping operation to bypass the blockage and direct the flow into the wastewater main heading to the treatment plant.
Our next step will be to install a temporary steel bypass pipeline over the stream, which will ensure safe wastewater flow while we design and engineer a permanent repair.
