Waipukurau & Waipawa Wastewater Treatment Plant Review Findings
Full findings from an independent review of Waipukurau and Waipawa wastewater treatment plants has found that neither plant are likely to be able to achieve the resource consents required for ammonia discharge and a significant capital investment is required over the next few years.
Central Hawke’s Bay District Mayor Alex Walker and the Council are extremely disappointed by the final results, but confident they now have the information needed to further investigate options for a long term wastewater solution for Waipawa and Waipukurau that improves the environmental outcomes we are all aiming to achieve.
“Performance of the plants has been under question by Councillors and community for several years and we now have a robust review that confirms that the current infrastructure is very unlikely to meet consent conditions.”
