Waipātiki residents got a close look at the community’s brand new water treatment facility last month, the sixth small community supply to be completed as part of the upgrade to all of Hastings’ water supplies.
As well as UV disinfection and chlorination, this supply also requires cartridge filtration as well as carbon and greensand filters to remove ammonia, iron and manganese.
The project ensures our small coastal and rural water supplies, like our urban areas, have a safe, resilient water supply with necessary capacity.
The last small community facility, in Whakatū, is due to be completed before Christmas, and the entire suite of upgrades identified in the 2018 Hastings Drinking Water Strategy is estimated to be finished next year.
The investment in new, quality drinking water has also included laying a second water main between Hastings and Havelock North, and a new pump station in Havelock North.
Six new small community drinking water storage and treatment facilities have been completed in Waipātiki, Waimārama, Te Awanga/Haumoana, Whirinaki/Esk, Te Pōhue and Clive.
The construction of both new large urban facilities is well on the way. The Frimley storage and treatment plant is near completion and will next go through the commissioning phase, while the construction of the Waiaroha facility, started in 2021, will be completed next year.
