Watercare, Auckland City Council's integrated water utility, is progressing plans for the construction of the Northern Interceptor, a new wastewater pipeline in Auckland.The Interceptor will transfer wastewater from north-western parts of Auckland to the Rosedale Wastewater Treatment Plant in Albany, servicing the North West and freeing-up capacity in the existing network for future growth.

Watercare submitted its Notices of Requirements and an Assessment of Effects on the Environment to Auckland Council in late 2016 regarding its proposed designations of land areas along the Nothern Inteceptor alignment. In August 2017, Watercare accepted Auckland Council's recommendation to confirm its Notices of Requirements in district plans.

The project will be constructed in stages, depending on the rate of population growth. The first phase of the project will take place between 2017 and 2020 and involve the preparation of consenting applications. Watercare will identify where infrastructure will be built during the designation phase between 2025 and 2030.
