Pounawea Sewerage Scheme

 

Clutha District Council will confirm funding arrangements for the Pounawea Sewerage Scheme at its meeting this Thursday 14 August 2014. 

 

In late 2012, Council committed to construct a sewerage system, pumping from the Pounawea Camping Ground to Owaka at an estimated cost of $310,000.

 

In September 2013, Council informed the community of a significant overrun of costs. This was due mainly to increasing the coverage of the sewerage system to provide reticulation to most of Pounawea.

 

The final cost of the sewerage system will be approximately $587,000 and Council will this Thursday make decisions on how the township part of the scheme (approximately $322,000) will be funded.

 

Chief Executive Steve Hill said that because the decision to extend the system was not consulted on with the community, and approval was not sought from the elected members, connection to the scheme would be voluntary.

 

“The positive message for the community of Pounawea, however, is that Council is intending to set the fees to connect to the scheme at less than the amounts originally advised, and that staff can now begin to communicate with the community to begin the process of individual connections.”

 

Mr Hill said that following Thursday’s Council meeting, the next step would be for a community meeting to advise people how to connect to the scheme and answer any questions.

 

More information about this community meeting will be made available once details are confirmed.
