The Christchurch City Council maintains wastewater systems to provide the community with a safe and healthy environment through the appropriate treatment and discharge of its wastewater. This covers both domestic wastewater and trade waste.
Our reticulated wastewater system handles domestic sewage from kitchens, bathrooms, laundries and toilets. It also receives a smaller amount of liquid discharge from commercial and industrial premises, such as discharge from restaurants, takeaway outlets, food processors, metal finishers, service stations and chemical manufacturers.
Significant projects are undertaken by the Council to provide for growth, upgrade wastewater treatment plants and reduce wastewater overflows to waterways.
Information about our wastewater treatment plants and their resource consents, including monitoring reports.
