Investing in our key wastewater infrastructure in Moera and Seaview
To improve the resilience of our wastewater network and reduce the risk of wastewater ending up where it shouldn’t, we’re duplicating a section of pipe between Barber Grove and Seaview. The current pipe carries about 80% of the wastewater from Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt, serving around 150,000 residents.
More broadly, we’ve budgeted to spend $48.7 million across our three waters infrastructure (drinking water, stormwater, and wastewater) this year. This includes $2.5 million to upgrade our water supply reservoirs and $700,000 to upgrade the seismic strengthening of critical drinking water pipelines. We’re also spending $6 million upgrading the rest of the water networks – on top of regularly scheduled maintenance.
