Council is considering three options to bring the Porangahau and Te Paerahi Wastewater Systems up to standard - to meet compliance along with the environmental and cultural aspirations of the community.
Read more about the project and options here.
The Porangahau and Te Paerahi Wastewater Treatment Plants consents expire in 2021. A condition of these consents were that Council work on removing the current Te Paerahi Treatment Plant and discharge from its current site, and to work toward ceasing river discharge into the Porangahau River. When the current Council begun to prepare for replacing these consents in 2018, we recommenced discussions with the community on how this should happen.
The costs go through a refining process as the design progresses. We are currently at a very early pre-concept design phase, and expect the costs to be in the vicinity of $10m.
The way we stage this work will impact the immediate effect on Central Hawke’s Bay’s rates.
