Reduce demand on Hamilton's western wastewater network.
Meet Peacocke's wastewater needs as the area grows
Provide essential wastewater services to Peacocke
Te kaunihera o Kirikiriroa
We're building a new wastewater pump station in Peacocke to cater for the area’s growth and reduce demand on the city's western wastewater network.
The new transfer station will collect wastewater from Peacocke and Fitzroy and temporarily store it until there is enough to push it through the pipeline to the wastewater treatment station at Pukete.
The pump station will transfer the wastewater via new pipelines over the Waikato River bridge (currently under construction), along the East Town Belt and Wairere Drive to connect into the city's existing wastewater network near Crosby Road. Work to install the new northern wastewater pipelines is nearing completion.
Most of the pump station will be constructed underground – up to 8.5m below ground level. Above ground it will incorporate artwork and interpretive signage to tell the story of the area.
As we build our new community in Peacocke we need to make sure we put the right infrastructure in place at the right time, like essential wastewater services.
2021Design work and selecting a construction partner.
January 2022Construction of the pump station and Fitzroy pipeline.
Mid 2023Site completion and landscaping.
Most of the transfer station will be built underground with the pump building and storage tanks visible from the shared path that will border the site. The first stage of construction will build the site access road for vehicles and equipment and then begin to excavate the site.
We’ll be using a combination of open trenching and directional drilling to build 1.5km of wastewater pipe around the transfer station site:
Brian Perry Civil began building the new transfer station and pipeline works in January 2022, with the project expected to be finished in mid-2023.
We’ll do our best to make sure there’s as little disruption as possible to residents, roads, parks and bike paths during construction. There may be some general construction effects for residents near the transfer station site, like dust, noise, and vibration - we’ll do our best to keep this to a minimum.
To keep our team and community safe, we’ll be working under traffic management which may affect how you drive, walk or bike through the area. Before we begin work in your area or street, we’ll be in touch to let you know what’s happening and provide regular updates.
