Water for Kapiti

Council to Investigate

Six Options

March 12, 2010

The Kāpiti Coast District Council has agreed to investigate  six ‘in-catchment’ water storage/supply solutions.

It notes that consultation to date shows a community preference for ‘in-catchment’ solutions for the Waikanae, Paraparaumu and Raumati water supply system.

The Council is also seeking formal confirmation from tāngata whenua and Ōtaki residents on their current views on whether “out-of-catchment” solutions should be included in the next stage of the water supply review for Waikanae, Paraparaumu and Raumati.

“We’re asking the Ōtaki Community Board to facilitate (with Council assistance) further consultation on Ōtaki water management matters as input into the current water review,” the Council resolved.

“We want to confirm the preferred position of the whole Ōtaki community on inclusion of any ‘out-of-catchment’ options in the next stage of the review,” Mayor Jenny Rowan said.

“Whatever the community says, we’ll listen.   We can then use that response in any consenting process for ‘in-catchment’ solutions to prove we did canvass all points of view.”
