We need to upgrade Akaroa’s wastewater system, which reflects our commitment to ensure the Akaroa community is provided with a high-quality wastewater system.
We have paused work on this project during the COVID-19 lockdown. We will update this page once we know when work will restart.
A new site has been chosen for technical and operational reasons, and recognises the historical importance of the Takapūneke Historic Reserve, where the current plant is located.
The new plant will be a compact modern facility, making use of recent improvements in wastewater treatment and attractively landscaped to limit visual impact. It will be quiet and will not cause odour. This will minimise the new plant’s impact on the environment and the community.
