Treatment Plant Upgrade

Timaru District Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade

2014 sees the completion of the $17m upgrade to the District's Wastewater Treatment Plant with commissioning programmed for mid 2015. When complete, the new plant will provide tertiary treatment of domestic sewage, by the oxidation, maturation and wetland ponds, before combining with the milliscreened industrial wastewater and discharging via the existing ocean outfall.
