Infrastructure upgrades on track for Mokau community

22 Dec 2021, 9:47 AM

Mokau water supply upgrade


A project to improve the water quality in Mokau is nearing completion, with the upgraded Water Treatment Plant due to be commissioned in the New Year.

An upgrade is necessary to improve the performance of the filtration unit, increase operational resilience and provide on-line monitoring and reporting, which is required for drinking water compliance and ultimately results in better water quality for Mokau residents.

To date, design work has been finalised and installation is part complete. Unfortunately, the supply of parts needed to complete the upgrade has been delayed due to COVID lockdown restrictions.

Commissioning is scheduled for early next year, however in meantime, water is still fully treated, including coagulation, filtration, ultraviolet and chlorine disinfection.


New Mokau Toilet Block


A new toilet block has been planned to duplicate the capacity of existing toilets in Mokau.

Land has been acquired, and the investigation and design also completed.

Construction is scheduled for New Year, starting with refurbishment of the existing
effluent disposal system.

Supplementary temporary toilets will also be provided for the peak summer holiday period.
