Our wastewater activity provides for the environmentally safe collection, treatment and disposal of the District’s sewage wastes. Council operates two schemes. One serves the township of Opotiki and the Waiotahi Drifts while the other serves a small subdivision at Waihau Bay. Both schemes discharge primary treated effluent to field soakage systems. All other dwellings in the District are serviced by privately owned septic tank systems.
The collection, treatment and safe disposal of human and commercial/trade wastes are essential for the protection of public health and environmental outcomes in urban areas.
