On the corner of Southampton St and Hastings St in central Hastings, the Waiaroha water storage and treatment facility is taking shape, and will provide water to properties on the reticulated supply in Hastings and Havelock North.
The work to date has been focused on stabilising the ground on which the two reservoirs will sit; each holding five million litres of water.
Construction of the foundations and concrete floor of the first reservoir has been completed and the steel dome roof and walls are now progressing.
Alongside this, the preparation of the foundations of the second reservoir are well underway.
The proposed water treatment plant building is located between the two reservoirs and work to date has included foundation excavation and placement of underground pipes.
The installation of the pipes and connections that will link the Waiaroha site to the existing network within the Hastings CBD has now been completed. The patience and support of local businesses and the general public has been appreciated.
While this facility is being built to increase the capacity, and improve the safety and resilience of the city’s drinking water supply, there is another educational element to this project that will offer the community a chance to understand more about the water that comes out of our taps.
The education building is nearing the end of the building consent phase and construction is due to start in June, with the work expected to take 12 months to complete.
