The Warkworth and Snells-Algies wastewater infrastructure project involves:
- construction of a new wastewater treatment plant at Snells Beach
- upgrading the ocean outfall which will discharge treated wastewater approximately 600 metres off the coast, to the south of Martins Bay into the Hauraki Channel, and
- a new pipeline, along with new pump stations to take wastewater from Warkworth to Snells Beach to increase the capacity of the wastewater network.
This project will be completed in stages over five to six years. The first stage of the project comprises the Snells-Algies wastewater pipe and outfall construction, comprising 6.5 kilometres of wastewater pipe.
