Wellington Water has been working with the Wellington City Council to deliver a reliable and effective new facility to substantially reduce the wastewater treatment sludge volume discharged to the southern landfill.

Minimising sludge and improving management will allow Wellington to get on with reducing our general solid waste to landfill as well as reducing our carbon emissions.

Given the scale and complexity of the work, the Council is working with government agencies on funding of the project. With a transaction of this size, it has been agreed the Council will act as delivery agent. 

Wellington Water supports the approach and have worked with the Council to enable a smooth transition of the project and the project team.
