Wastewater Pipeline Relining Whakatū

As part of Hastings District Council’s ongoing commitment to water, work is about to start on upgrades to the wastewater system in Whakatū. Work will include the renewal of pipelines to ensure the continued resilience of the wastewater network. Interflow NZ Ltd will be delivering these services on Hastings District Council’s behalf.

WHEN: Commencing at the end of June and complete by September 2021. Work will only be undertaken between the hours of 7.00am and 5.00pm, Monday to Saturday.

WHERE: The map below indicates where the pipelines will be renewed.

Wastewater Relining WhakatuWHAT TO EXPECT:

  • There will be no loss of wastewater services. Trenchless technology will be used which only requires access to existing manholes.
  • The only disruption to local residents will be traffic delays at times.
  • The work will be completed in three stages: cleaning and preparation, renewal of the pipelines and finishing works.
  • Trucks and specialised equipment used for the pipeline renewal will be on site throughout the duration of the works, this will include 2.5m diameter drums that will placed along the route
  • At times, the footpath on one side of the road will be closed and parking on the shoulder will be limited.
  • If there is traffic management in place that directly affects your property, we will ensure you are notified prior to the works.
