Clevedon village residents will soon be able to connect to mains water and wastewater services.
We have recently reached an agreement with local landowners and developers to build and fund infrastructure for the village. We will deliver the project and the design-build contract is currently in the tendering process.
Watercare commercial manager, Carl Tucker says: “We expect the contract to be awarded mid-year with detailed design to be completed after this, and we anticipate connections to the network will be available early 2020.”
Clevedon has been zoned for growth under the Unitary Plan. The service area will cover Auckland Council’s sub-precincts A-E (excluding C, which are rural zones) of the Unitary Plan. This is available on Auckland Council’s website.
Construction of our water and wastewater networks may begin at the end of the year and will include a water reservoir and wastewater pump stations. The water will be supplied by the Ardmore Water Treatment Plant, Creightons Road. The wastewater network will be a vacuum system similar to Kawakawa Bay, with wastewater being transported via Papakura for treatment at the Mangere Wastewater Treatment Plant. Once the scheme is developed connections will be available.
It is anticipated that new properties within the village will connect to the network. Existing properties within Clevedon Village that are currently on private water supplies and on-site wastewater systems will also be able to connect to our water and wastewater network. Costs are still to be determined.
We will be providing more information over the coming months, as more details become available.
Tucker says the announcement is good news for residents and the environment as the township has a legacy issue with failing septic tanks and pollution of the environment.
