Outfall pipe settles on seabed

Watercare has successfully floated a new wastewater outfall pipe from Kaiaua to the Tiri Channel, off Army Bay, where it was sunk onto the seabed.

The 450m long pipe was pulled by a tugboat overnight, travelling just three knots (three nautical miles per hour).

The pipe was carefully lowered into place on August 2.

The new outfall pipe is part of a major upgrade to Watercare’s Wastewater Treatment Plant at Army Bay and will cater for future growth in the region.
