Information on our projects and activities in the Devonport-Takapuna local board area
Wastewater from private residences and non-domestic sites goes into the wastewater network and is pumped to treatment plants for treatment and disposal. The wastewater network in this particular local board area is split between East Coast Bays, Devonport-Takapuna, and Shoal Bay catchments. The main trunk line from Devonport is pumped through big pumping stations at Seabreeze Road and Northboro Road, joining the Takapuna lines onto Fred Thomas Drive. From Milford it comes around the top of lake Pupuke via the pump station at Alma Road. The wastewater travels north through Wairau Valley to the treatment plant at Rosedale.
In 2018, significant work was done to upgrade the Fred Thomas Drive wastewater pump station. Storage was commissioned to cater for growth in Devonport and Takapuna which helped reduce wet weather overflows. At the same time, we undertook wastewater upgrades in the Wairau Road area.
