Otane Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade
Council submitted its extension application to Hawkes Bay Regional Council (HBRC) on Friday 2nd November 2018. This is following consultation with neighbours and original application submitters.
Following a supportive and positive response from those affected, council will work on reviewing options for Otane amongst the Waipukurau and Waipawa wastewater treatment plant project.
Council is also working on securing a contractor to undertake an infiltration and inflow (I&I) study in Otane, with a view to reduce the I&I in the Otane network and subsequently the volume the oxidation pond and future plants have to treat.
Infiltration is the seepage of ground water into the sewer system through defects in sewer piping or into loose sewer connections. Inflow is water or sewage draining directly into the sewer line through a sewer connection.
Further updates will be provided as this project progresses.
Central Hawke’s Bay District Council (CHBDC) are currently working through a project to upgrade the wastewater treatment plant in Otane, this involves upgrading the amount of waste the plant can treat and the quality of the water discharged. This is in line with a newly issued resource consent that requires upgrade of our plant to meet requirements.
We are currently reviewing our options before making a decision, and plan to involve the community in these decisions.
