Kilbirnie pump station

Three water s work programme

Wellington Water, a Council Controlled Organisation, manages our water, wastewater and stormwater (three waters) services and delivers big improvement projects on our three waters network. There are some significant capital projects scheduled and we have reviewed our programme to make sure the funding levels and timing are appropriate.

Kilbirnie stormwater pumpstation

Upgrades to stormwater pipes in Kilbirnie have lifted service levels to cope with a one-in-10-year rain event at current sea levels, in line with the regional standard for new subdivisions. Kilbirnie homes and businesses remain vulnerable to flooding events beyond this level, because there are no clear overland floodwater flow paths. We have asked Wellington Water to confirm this project represents a good investment considering other parts of the city are not yet at the one-in-10-year protection level. The stormwater pumpstation, proposed to be built at Evans Bay Park at an estimated cost of $8.3 million, was originally set for 2019 and has been re-timed to begin in the 2021/22 year, with the increased costs to be considered as part of the next 10-Year Plan.
