Water Treatment Plant open day well attended

More than 50 people took advantage of the opportunity to learn more about water treatment when visiting the Waikanae Water Treatment Plant on Saturday.

The Plant held the open day for three hours.

Kāpiti Council spokesperson Tony Cronin said “Every day we collect an average of 16 million litres of Waikanae River water and treat it at the Waikanae Water Treatment Plant.

“All Waikanae, Paraparaumu and Raumati residents have to do is turn on a tap and it’s there. The open day showed people how it gets there and why we treat it and how we treat it.”
