Tour of the water treatment plant at Kumara


Council will be upgrading the water treatment plant in Kumara next year.  If people are interested in taking a look at this plant prior to the upgrade, then now is your chance.

An open day is scheduled and Council encourages people to come along and see inside the plant, and ask questions.

The open day is Saturday 21 January 2017.  The Kumara plant will be open to the public between 2 – 3.30pm.

Council’s Water Services Engineer, Pam Wilson advises that “some people might want to pop in for a quick look, others might want to know all about how the plants operate and why the upgrades are being made.  I’m happy to stay on site so people can come and go.”

The Kumara water treatment plant is on Kumara-Inchbonnie Road, at the bottom of the hill opposite the power station.
