Whaanga Coast wastewater scheme completion date pushed back

18 March 2014

Whaanga Coast wastewater scheme completion date pushed back

The completion date of Whaanga Coast’s new wastewater system has been pushed back to May allowing existing property owners extra time to join the scheme.

Contractors Spartan Construction have installed nearly three quarters of the main sewer line along Wainui Road and Upper Wainui Road, and are nearing completion of the booster pump station adjacent to Manu Bay Reserve.

Waikato District Council General Manager Service Delivery Tim Harty says he’s pleased with the work that has been completed to date however a couple of issues have slowed the work temporarily.

“The project was scheduled for March completion however we’ve experienced a couple of setbacks including product delays and the need to finalise discussions with a group of property owners. To date, 70 residential and two commercial properties have signed up to the scheme - two thirds of those connections are now installed and one system (the new kindergarten) is up and running.”

He says the delay does have a positive spinoff for property owners still considering whether or not to join the scheme. “If they (existing property owners) join the scheme before construction ends, they’re eligible for a subsidised connection price.”

Property owners interested in joining the scheme can call Grant Tregidga at Waikato District Council on 0800 492 452.
