Where we are going

The aim is to develop a sewerage scheme that serves the community in a way that is environmentally sustainable and culturally appropriate. These objectives are reflected in the Lakes Rotorua and Rotoiti Action Plan and Council's Long-term Plan for 2018 - 2028. (Refer to page 14).

Council has taken the advice of the Rotoiti Rotomā Sewerage Steering Committee and a dedicated Cultural Impact Team in picking a preferred sewerage scheme option.

So what will the sewerage system include?

  • Building a Wastewater Treatment Plant behind the Rotoiti Emery Store; and
  • A reticulation network of about 22 kilometres which runs from Matahī Road in Rotomā to the plant in Rotoiti


  • The system will be expanded, with the intention of connecting the Lake Rotoehu and eastern Rotoiti communities to the network
  • The total reticulation network will be 47.5 kilometres long
