Water & Sewerage Reticulation in Pauatahanui Village
After many years of planning, work to connect water and sewerage to properties in Pauatahanui village has finally been completed and was officially opened on 26 June 2014.
The project was seen by both Porirua City Council and local residents as an important step in protecting the health of the Pauatahanui Inlet. Many of the properties within the village were on low-lying land that was susceptible to a high water table. They were also too small to adequately deal with on-site wastewater disposal (i.e. septic tanks).
Twenty-one Pauatahanui properties, including Pauatahanui School and preschool, have now been connected through the scheme, with half the capital cost of the project paid for by the property owners.
