Warkworth wastewater scheme

We are upgrading the wastewater infrastructure in the Warkworth area.
Start–finish: 2021-TBC
Location: Warkworth-Snells-Algies
Status: Construction

Project overview

Warkworth is expected to grow significantly over the next few decades, with up to 20,000 people moving to the area over the next few decades. We are undertaking a number of significant wastewater infrastructure projects which together will accommodate this planned growth. They will also reduce overflows and discharges into the Mahurangi River, creating a cleaner environment for everyone to enjoy.

What are we building?

Across five projects we are building a new pipeline, pump station, wastewater treatment plant and outfall pipe. Each of these projects is connected and will support population growth in the area.
