Over the last few years Council has been upgrading the urban public water supplies with the aim of improving the quality and risk profile (safety and storage) of the supplies. Water supplies in the district (funded through a government grant) have been improved in the current year. While there is nothing wrong with the water that is being delivered to residents currently, the improvements reduce possible risks by encouraging more secure sources of water and higher treatment levels than was previously the case.

Council has planned further water scheme upgrades focused on:

  • increasing storage in the larger towns to better meet water demand during dry spells, fire fighting and other large scale emergencies; and
  • providing more secure supplies where possible and higher levels of water treatment.

Providing more secure supplies (such as deep bores) and secure storage facilities can reduce treatment and monitoring costs. By ensuring that the capacity of these supplies is increased to meet both normal and emergency demand, and by supplementing existing treatment facilities, the new standards can be met without large increases in operating costs.


Council Initiatives

Council aims to carry out the seven projects identified to improve the quality and risk profile of the district water supplies at a total cost of $2.66 million. These projects are loan funded.

Project 1: Dannevirke water storage cover
To increase security of supply and water quality, with a subsequent reduction in water treatment required. (on-going)

Project 2: UV treatment of the Dannevirke Impounded Water Supply
To eliminate sprotozoa and achieve improved water grading. (2013)

Project 3: Pahiatua storage
Second bore & pump station - to improve security of supply. (2013)

Project 4: Eketahuna - additional storage (24 hours)
To improve ability to meet demand. (2013/14)

Project 5: Pongaroa - chlorinator, filtration, telemetry
To improve water quality, reduce water loss and treatment cost. (2016 - 2018)

Project 6: Akitio – water treatment

Project 7: Leak detection work
To reduce water loss and treatment cost. (2012/13 - 2016/17)

These projects also ensure the district’s water supplies complys with the drinking water standards and, over the ten years of the plan, reduces the treatment and monitoring costs.
