We will be lodging an application in April 2020 to renew the treatment plant's resource consents which expire in October 2020.
As part of this, we plan further improvements to the plant, building on upgrades over the last seven years that have improved capacity and enhanced the quality of discharge.
The improvements will increase the capacity of the plant from 1,000 litres to 1,500 litres of wastewater per second. Alongside other technical improvements, this will ensure the treatment plant can fully treat all the flows that reach it and will avoid any bypassing.
The next area of focus for us will be the wastewater network that transports wastewater from your home to the treatment plant.'
