December 2020

The East Rotoiti Rotomā Treatment Plant was commissioned in 2019 and is now operating as designed and performing well. Rotoma properties are connected to the plant.

Over the next two years, as engagement with home and landowners in the Rotoiti area continues, the new on-site systems will be installed and connected to the new reticulation network.

Summary:

The East Rotoiti Rotomā Sewerage Scheme aims to provide an essential service to the community delivered in a way that protects the health of residents and water quality of the lake and is culturally appropriate.

This kaupapa has been led by the Rotoiti Rotomā Sewerage Steering Committee since its inception in 2014 after Council's resource consent for its chosen scheme, at the time, failed in the Environment Court in 2012.

Finding preferred options for the community has also been supported by the Bay of Plenty Regional Council and funding from Ministry of Health and Ministry for the Enviornment

A Wastewater Treatment Plant was built behind the Rotoiti Emery Store and some 47 kilometres of reticulation network has been laid from to service properties from Matahi to Curtis Road. .

Rotomā properties including non-residential were connected to the new service in 2019/20. Homes in east Rotoiti will be connected over the next two years,

    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


    Future-proofing:

    • 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
