Find out what projects we are currently planning and working on as well as recently completed projects.
Phase 1 : To work with the community to set criteria and work towards a preferred solution or Best Practicable Option (BPO) for the future of Waipukurau, Waipawa and recently the introduction of Otane into the project scope by April 2019. Phase 2: To provide a report to the environment court and HBRC by 30 June 2019 Phase 3: To design, fund and build the BPO
To renew approx. 2200m of 375mm glazed earthenware pipe that is known to have poor leaking joints and allows a great deal of infiltration into the pipework through tree root intrusion and cracks along the pipeline, council preferred solution would be to reline as much of the pipeline as possible, three priority areas have been identified.
To upgrade the bores and electrical configuration at the SH2 water source that supplies Pukeora reservoir and Waipukurau. The scope involves upgrading and refurbishing 4 bores, pipework configuration, the electrical components, transformer, fencing and a tank for surplus water.
The purpose of this program is to manage and reduce inflow and infiltration (I&I) into the wastewater network to assist with compliance with the resource consent, free up capacity in the pipe network and assist with the development of CHBDC’s capital works programmes.
In 2019 Central Hawke’s Bay District Council along with Veolia delivered a design and build upgrade to the Takapau Water Treatment Plant.This upgrade dealt with the known issues of manganese while ensuring consistency and compliance with drinking water standards and allows for the ability to meet community water demands.
In 2020, Central Hawke’s Bay District Council delivered a key flagship project of #thebigwaterstory to the communities of Porangahau and Te Paerahi. The newly opened water treatment plant and storage additions, improve drinking water quality by removing iron, and reducing hardness significantly, the upgrade also adds much needed storage (approx. 250,000 litres) to the treated water supply to deal with the summer demands. During the upgrade we were able to add an environmental improvement by installing a new pumped discharge pipeline from the plant to the wastewater network some 700 metres away.
