Taipa Wastewater Plant

There is still time to make a submission regarding the renewal of the District Council's resource consent to operate the East Coast Bays Wastewater treatment plant at Taipa. If you would like to discuss the framing of a submission from your group or as an individual, please come along to the Taipa Area School Whare on Tuesday August 3, from 6 to 8 pm.

It emerged from earlier public meetings called by Care for Our Catchment, Doubtless Bay, that the community wants greater input into the design and management of the wastewater plant, no discharge to waterways of effluent (whether treated or not) and sounder environmental standards maintained in the receiving environment.
