We are upgrading Akaroa’s wastewater system. It is old and in a historically and culturally sensitive place and needs to be rebuilt and relocated. Consultation is open from 21 July to 23 August.
We have consents to build a new wastewater treatment plant on Old Coach Road and a new pump station at the Childrens Bay boat park.
The new plant will be modern and compact, using the latest methods of treatment. It will be quiet, odourless and attractively landscaped. All wastewater leaving the plant will be highly treated.
We now need to decide what to do with the highly treated wastewater when it leaves the plant and we have four possible options – three land-based options and a new harbour outfall.
We are seeking community views on these options, with consultation open from Tuesday 21 July to Sunday 23 August.
