The Takapau Wastewater Treatment Plant has a consent expiring in October 2021. The plant performs to reasonable standard however requires some improvements. It has a basic oxidation pond treatment and currently discharges to the Makaretu River via a wetland, however Council has heard from the community that there is an appetite to explore a land-based discharge system.
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 $2m for Project Two.
The way we stage this work will impact the immediate effect on Central Hawke’s Bay’s rates.
