Caravan Wastewater Dump Stations

A project of work to supply motorhome and campervan visitors to Central Hawke's Bay with convenient, safe environmental friendly effluent waste disposal sites.

Council has begun researching options for new wastewater dump stations in Central Hawke's Bay. 

The aim of the project is to install a caravan/motorhome dump station or stations within the Central Hawkes Bay area to service those travelling to/through the district and to provide a service that enhances Central Hawkes Bay’s reputation as a fantastic tourist destination.  

This project has the potential to provide a meaningful impact to a significant amount of both travellers and residents through enhanced service availability and opportunities for economic growth.

Update January 2021:

Late in November 2020 Council signalled that we were starting a project to investigate, design and install Motorhome/Caravan dump stations within the district.

A preferred location has been identified, being River Terrace in Waipukurau. If additional funding is secured, a possible second location will be confirmed. 

The site will be developed with a chip-sealed pavement to form a turning circle suitable for large motorhomes. This will include a concrete dump station receptacle with a wastewater sump, non-potable water supply for cleaning and a potable water supply for refilling of on-board water storage. A central garden area will be formed and planted.  

The investigation and design work has been completed in house and Council has released a request for tender to the open market for the physical works.

Look out for updates in the future with construction planned to start in early March 2021. 


Additional site(s)?

The project is funded through central government in part, and the NZ motor caravan association – to provide infrastructure that would allow those visiting the district the ability to appropriately dispose of their caravan waste.

Along with River Terrace, Waipukurau, the funding Council has received may allow for a second location. The site needs to be at a location where existing infrastructure already exists.

We would like to hear from you regarding whether there is a need for a station like this in Te Paerahi? and if so where would an appropriate location may be?
