As we head into winter, work at the Frimley water storage and treatment facility continues at pace.
This facility’s three main components are a new eight million litre water storage reservoir, a new treatment building and a series of new bores; linked by a pipe network that was installed at the start of the project.
Over the last few months the reservoir and treatment building have been completed, with the installation of the pumps and equipment within the treatment facility now well advanced.
Two of the new bores have been drilled and tested and are currently being connected to the treatment building, while the third bore is due for completion in June.
This project is a key part of the Hastings Drinking Water Strategy, and is expected to be contributing to Hastings’ largest urban water supply (Hastings, Flaxmere, Havelock North) by September this year.
Once all of the physical works are completed, a comprehensive commissioning and testing programme of all elements will be carried out, prior to delivering safe, treated water into the city network.
As well as enabling effective water treatment, this facility, along with the 10 million litres at the Waiaroha site and 20 million litres in the Havelock North reservoirs will give the system resilience, ensuring there is drinking-water available in the event of a natural disaster.
NEW PARK SPACE
The removal of the maintenance area and sheds on Frimley Park has largely been completed, with a remaining building due for removal after the treatment building has been built.
The removal was agreed to during community discussions on developing the drinking water infrastructure on the park, with the land to be reintegrated into the park.
A plan for the use of the 0.2-hectare space is expected to be published for public discussion as part of a draft 10-year Reserve Management Plan for Frimley Park by July.
