Motueka Water Supply and Treatment Plant

We are delighted to have be part of this project with Tasman District Council.

Here’s the article from TDC

The sparkling new Motueka water supply and treatment plant is about to go on tap. Currently, household water for those on the Motueka reticulated supply is drawn from bores next to the Recreation Centre on Old Wharf Road and piped around town. The old system is struggling to keep up with demand and doesn’t meet safe drinking water standards.

Investigation into finding a new reliable source of drinking water for Motueka began many years ago. Tests identified a suitable site at the western end of Parker Street and new water bores were successfully drilled deep underground.

Construction of the new water treatment plant building and the installation of storage tanks and treatment equipment began last year and finished about a month ago, and the plant is now being fully tested before coming online. The project has an overall cost of $ 3.5 million.

About only a third of Motueka properties are currently connected to the Council supply and many rely on private bores for household water, but the added capacity of the new Parker Street plant means everyone in the town can be supplied high quality and safe drinking water into the future.

The new plant uses multiple water treatment barriers and follows the NZ Drinking Water Standards and Water Services Act requirements for the treatment/removal of protozoa and bacteria. It includes UV treatment, cartridge filtration, and residual chlorine disinfection.
