Rotorua Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade

Rotorua Lakes Council and CNI have made a commitment to end spraying treated wastewater in Whakarewarewa Forest by 2019.

The upgraded Wastewater Treatment Plant will be able to handle more than 70 million litres of wastewater, which is three times more than it does today.

Council is currently engaging with the community to find out what residents think about the preferred Water Restoration Land Contact Bed and the treated wastewater release point option, which have been designed using Māori knowledge. (Matauranga Māori)

Council needs your help to answer two prominent questions:

  • How can we improve the design of the Land Contact Bed proposed at the Wastewater Treatment Plant?
  • How best can we address your concerns about the proposed Land Contact Bed?
