We are working on a programme to improve the wastewater system that serves Porirua and the northern suburbs of Wellington city. With long-term investment in the network and upgrades to the treatment plant, the programme will help improve water quality in Te Awarua-o-Porirua, the harbour, local waterways around the catchment and future-proof the system for growth.
Ko Te Awarua-o-Porirua he taonga tuku iho a Ngāti Toa Rangātira
Te Awarua-o-Porirua is an ancestral treasure of Ngāti Toa Rangātira
Ths programme supports the Porirua community's ambition and the Porirua City Council’s strategic priority to improve the health of the harbour, a unique and precious estuarine environment.
This is a joint venture between Porirua City Council (PCC) and Wellington City Council (WCC). Wellington Water Ltd (WWL) is implementing the project on behalf of both project partners.
The Collaborative Group
In developing the programme, Wellington Water has worked closely with a collaborative group focused on improving wastewater management, made up of representatives from PCC, Ngāti Toa, Greater Wellington Regional Council, WCC, the Te Awarua-o-Porirua Whaitua Committee and other community groups and stakeholders.
