Te Kuiti Water Treatment Plant Upgrade

Tuesday, 22 May 2018

We are working to construct a new river water intake structure as part of the Water Treatment Plant upgrade. This work is hampered by the high water level and flow rate of the Mangaokewa River.

The recent pattern of heavy rainfall also continues to inundate the excavation site. We are currently driving sheet piling to keep the river water out of the work site.

Sheet piling is being used to keep the river water out of the work site.

We are making progress with the electrical connections for the river water intake structure which includes pumps, valves, meters and air scouring mechanism.

Work to modernise and automate the water clarification process is underway with new sludge cone valves to be installed.

All four of the treatment plant’s clarifiers have now been refurbished
