Let’s talk about the Winton Wastewater Treatment Plant
Add a comment
The current consent for the Winton Wastewater Treatment Plant will expire in 2023.
Due to changing regulations and standards, it’s unlikely that a renewal of consent will be granted.
That means a new, long-term and sustainable solution to treat and discharge the town’s wastewater will need to be found.
It’s going to be a complex project, and one we want to engage with the community on.
Southland District Council staff are working alongside consultants and a working group, comprising experts and representatives from a range of sectors, to determine a shortlist of options.
That shortlist will be presented to the community – and we want to hear your views.
It’s a conversation worth having. Each option will come with environmental, cultural, social and economic considerations, so it’s important to let us know what you think.
Your feedback will contribute to a decision on a preferred option and recommendation to Council.
At any stage of the process, please feel free to contact us for more information or to be involved. Simply ask a question on this page, or phone 0800 732 732.
