What's happening

Wellington Water is upgrading the treatment plant with a larger treated water storage tank. This will increase supply security during the summer months.

Wellington Water is upgrading the Waiohine Water Treatment Plant in Greytown to increase water storage capacity and improve water treatment facilities. The plant supplies water to Featherston and Greytown.  These improvements are needed to reduce pressure on water supplies during peak summer demand.

 Improvements include: adding another bore to increase water supply, repairing and recommissioning an existing water reservoir to increase storage, and improvements to water treatment systems. 

Work has been underway since June and is expected to be completed towards the end of the year.
