Pukete Treatment Plant Open Day

Tour Restrictions at Pukete Wastewater Treatment Plant​

Maintenance and upgrade work are scheduled to be undertaken between November 2017 and early 2018 at the Pukete Wastewater Treatment Plant. 

The work is likely to impact on access to a number of areas of the plant and this may require us to restrict some tours and public visits to the site until the majority of construction and maintenance work are complete. 

​The restrictions are required to ensure work can be carried out efficiently and in a safe manner. We look forward to resuming full tours of the Pukete Wastewater Treatment plant as soon as possible.​
