The East Rotoiti Rotomā Sewerage Scheme (the Scheme) aims to protect the health of the waterways, the health of the public, and to provide an essential service to the community. The scheme also aligns with the vision of the Rotorua Te Arawa lakes Programme (a partnership between Te Arawa Lakes Trust, Rotorua Lakes Council and the Bay of Plenty Regional Council):

‘to preserve and protect the lakes for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations while recognising and providing for the traditional relationship of Te Arawa with their ancestral lakes’

The project has come to fruition through a collaborative effort by Rotoiti/Rotomā Sewerage Steering Committee, Rotorua Lakes Council, Te Arawa Lakes Trust and Bay of Plenty Regional Council. The project has also been assisted through funding from the Ministry for the Environment and the Ministry of Health.

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,
