Leachate to Land Irrigation Project

Central Hawkes Bay District Council (CHBDC) has re-commenced a project to review options to irrigate the leachate produced by the landfill back onto a capped cell within the landfill.

Update - 25 July 2019

Council has completed a robust procurement process and has identified a preferred supplier for this project.

Council now works to seek the relevant approvals, and is in the planning stages with the contractor and the landfill operations contractor to progress this project.

Works are expected to commence in late Aug 2019.

Update - 05 April 2019

A resource consent has been submitted to Hawke's Bay Regional Council to amend the current resource consent conditions to allow us to irrigate the leachate back onto the landfill. 

Following granting of consent conditions, Council plans to take this project to the market to identify a suitable partner to undertake the proposed works.

Below is an overview of the proposed irrigation area.

Update - 21 February 2019

Three options regarding storage for the leachate project have been presented, CHBDC have reviewed the options and agreed to proceed with an option to increase the pond storage currently in-situ on the landfill. At present CHBDC are preparing a resource consent application to allow for this change in consent on how we manage the leachate. CHBDC expect to have lodged the consent with HBRC by mid March 2019.

Update - 14 January 2019

CHBDC commissioned a survey of the landfill to help better understand the topographic and levels to progress improvements at the landfill and inform the leachate project requirements, in particular to surface area required to irrigate the leachate on. Below is a snapshot of the survey image.
