Waiaroha: Water treatment and storage

Waiaoha SafeguardingConcepts for a new water treatment and storage facility in Hastings central city, on the corner of Southampton St East and Hastings St South, are ready for your input. 

The project is a critical part of the Hastings Drinking Water Strategy (2018), prepared after the Havelock North water crisis and ensuing Government Inquiry. Its components will help keep our drinking water safe, add capacity, and improve resilience. This project is also a necessary step towards enabling Hastings to comply with the National Drinking Water Standards

It will be set in landscaping that reflects our water’s journey, from the mountains to the sea – with plenty of opportunities to touch, play and paddle in water. 

Through its integrated indoor/outdoor education elements, Waiaroha will provide in-depth information on things like how Hastings drinking water is treated to keep us safe, provide ‘live’ information on water testing, and give everyone access to information on our waterways and aquifers. 

For all of the information and artist’s impressions of the project, visit the Hastings District Council website here.
