Wastewater servicing project for Whangaparaoa and surrounding growth areas

We are reviewing the wastewater treatment and discharge options in Whangaparaoa and surrounding growth areas.

Start-finish: November 2017 – August 2018
Location: Whangaparaoa and surrounding growth areas
Status: Planning

As part of the resource consents renewal process, we will be reviewing future wastewater treatment servicing options to plan for the growing population while protecting public health and the environment. Under Auckland Council’s growth projections, the existing wastewater network that connects to the existing Army Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant caters for a population of approximately 46,000, which is estimated to increase to a population of approximately 180,000 by 2053.

What's happening?

Discharges from the facility are managed by two discharge consents, one for air and the other for disposal of treated wastewater to the sea. Both are due to expire on 31 December 2021.

Our project team will review short, medium and long-term solutions to cater for the increase in population growth which balances affordability, community impacts, environmental and cultural factors. We will work in association with the affected communities and mana whenua to communicate plans and get feedback on the proposed network options.

How can I find out more?

We are hosting some initial public open days for the communities that are serviced by Army Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant to discuss the initial long-list of options to service the population growth. Please see the times and dates below:

Open Days:

  • Wednesday 14 February 2018, 3pm to 6pm: Orewa Community Centre (40-46 Orewa Square, Orewa)

  • Thursday 15 February 2018, 4pm to 7pm: Stoney Homestead Community Hub (12 Galbraith Greens, Silverdale)

What are the benefits?
