Work on Whaanga Coast wastewater scheme progressing well

Construction of the new Whaanga Coast wastewater project is progressing well with 12 properties already connected to the new system and fully operational.

Waikato District Council’s contractor, Spartan Construction, have installed 90 percent of the main sewer line along Wainui Road and Upper Wainui Road with the full scheme scheduled for completion in June.

General Manager Service Delivery Tim Harty says Council is pleased with the progress made throughout the project including the feedback they’ve received for the new scheme from both residents and local iwi.

“We’ve made a determined effort to provide regular updates to property owners and key stakeholders including local iwi throughout the project and this has played a significant role in helping us stay close to our original timeline and delivering the final project within budget.”

Mr Harty says as the project nears completion, property owners who are considering signing up to the new scheme are urged to do so as soon as possible.

“Existing property owners who join the scheme before construction ends will pay a subsidised amount with Council covering 52% of the connection cost. Once the project is complete the offer isn’t available and they’ll need to contribute the full sum.”

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