Mamaku water treatment plant upgrade complete



6 December 2018

The $1 million upgrade to Mamaku’s water supply infrastructure is now complete.

The upgrade work was undertaken to add ultra-violet light treatment as an additional treatment to chlorination which will now be consistent with Rotorua’s nine other water supplies.

The work also ensures that all Rotorua’s water supplies are now treated to give communities the highest possible drinking water quality under the Drinking Water Standards for New Zealand.

Other work that took place during the upgrade included replacing one of the existing bore pumps, adding extra filtration devices and water quality monitoring equipment.

The project was commended earlier this year by Rural Community Board chair Shirley Trumper who said it was good to know that Council is vigilant in protecting our water quality and that all 10 supplies within the district will now be doubly protected with chlorine and ultra-violet light.
