New mining proposal

New Waihi mining proposal shared with Council

Hauraki District Council’s $4.4 million Kaimanawa drinking water supply project near Hikutaia is on the home straight

The project will supply quality drinking water treated at the Paeroa water treatment plant to properties in the Kaimanawa and Maratoto areas currently connected to the rural supply.

To make sure there’s a continuous supply, Hauraki District Council will also build a 2000 cubic metre reservoir, which will store enough drinking water for three days. 

The project is now complete. The old Kaiamanawa intake has been disconnected and residents in the Kaimanawa and Maratoto areas who were on this rural supply are now connected to the upgraded Paeroa Drinking Water Supply.

Boil water notice

A permanent boil water notice is currently in place and has been for several years for users of the Kaimanawa supply. The water is treated but there have been problems with water quality and supply in the past, especially during flooding.

Sep 2020 – Testing and commissioning

Part of a larger project

The Kaimanawa drinking water supply is the last of the council’s rural supplies to be upgraded as part of an ambitious project to upgrade all its rural drinking water supplies. The Waikino, Karangahake and Mackaytown water supplies have all been upgraded over the past few years.
