Start-finish: Site landscaping: June-August 2017; construction of reservoir 1: 2018-2020
Location: Corner of Runciman and Rutherford roads, Pukekohe East
Construction of the first reservoir is due to start in 2018, and will take two years. The second is scheduled to be built around 10-15 years later, depending on population growth.
We are now obtaining statutory approvals. In December 2016 a hearing at the Environment Court was held to determine the outcome of the resource consent and notice of requirement approvals. The decision was made in mid-February 2017 and approval was granted. We will reduce some of the visual impact by planting a living screen. Early planting will begin in the 2017 planting season.
What are the benefits?
The new reservoirs will:
- Cater for increased water demand as the region’s population grows.
- Help us maintain a secure supply of water.
- Allow us to continue maintaining other parts of the water network.
