|Mahia Beach Pipe Installation Update|
|Tuesday, 10 July 2012 13:22|
Construction of the Mahia Beach Community Wastewater Scheme is now underway with the installation of pipes in road verges.
Expected to continue until September, the work is being carried out by contractors Quality Roading and Services (Wairoa) Limited.
Wairoa District Council Special Projects Engineer Jamie Cox said that the organisation of on-lot components of the project is also progressing well.
"When this is complete, we'll be contacting individuals to talk about how the on-lot work will be configured on each property, and payment options for the work," he said.
Scheduled for completion in June 2013, the scheme will service 371 existing connections, with the capacity for over 600.
The Ministry of Health recently increased the subsidy from $3.1 million to $5.5 million, meaning Council will be re-examining the finances across the scheme. The rating impact of the estimated $12.75 million project on individual ratepayers is expected to be quantified and available as part of the annual plan process for the year ending June 30, 2014.
