The city’s wastewater system removes some 25,000,000 litres of wastewater from Upper Hutt homes, shops and business premises each day through 223 kilometres of wastewater mains, manholes (access chambers) and 11 community pumping stations. The Hutt Valley Bulk Wastewater System is jointly administered by the Upper Hutt City Council and Hutt City Council by way of a joint committee known as the Hutt Valley Services Committee.
The Hutt City Council is responsible for the administration of bulk wastewater system from the Hutt City and Upper Hutt City, conveying wastewater to the Wastewater Treatment Plant and operation of the Wastewater Treatment Plant. Upper Hutt City Council pays an annual operating levy.
In keeping with Councils Strategic Plan a cost effective, high quality and reliable wastewater disposal system is to be provided, which includes a reduction in the volume of stormwater infiltration into the wastewater system.
