We operate two Biological Trickling Filters (BTFs) to treat our wastewater at the Awatoto Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). Alongside a spiritually cleansing Papatūānuku channel, these BTFs were constructed to address tangata whenua concerns about the quality of water being discharged to Hawke Bay.
We are working on a cost-effective and innovative solution to wastewater pipe issues in Wycliffe Street, Onekawa. Rather than digging an open trench and replacing the wastewater pipe as we would with traditional construction, we are threading a new PVC pipe inside the old concrete one.
Manganese in our water source reacts with chlorine to discolour the water. High on our priority list is exploring potential new bores at Awatoto and Taradale that could supply water with lower manganese levels. This has a $2 million budget, provided through the Government Three Waters Reform Fund.
We're upgrading some of our water mains to ensure they continue to meet fire-fighting requirements as our population grows. Bay View and Westshore will be the first areas to be upgraded. This work is expected to start in August. The budget is $2.5 million and comes from the Government's Three Waters Reform Fund.
A project is underway to research the quality of the beds of the waterways in the Pandora Industrial area. Over decades, heavy metals, rubbish and oils have flowed into the Pandora stormwater network, accumulating and eventually settling on the bottom of the Thames and Tyne waterways.

A second de-chlorinated water station has opened on Marine Parade, next to the National Aquarium of New Zealand. The first station provided filtered water was installed at Anderson Park, Greenmeadows, last year. Napier City Council agreed to provide the community with two de-chlorinated water stations when the Long Term Plan 2018-2028 was adopted in June 2018.
