We are building a new drinking water storage tank at Dip Road in Te Kamo to increase our stored water supplies for Te Kamo, Tikipunga and Hikurangi.

The new tank will have a storage capacity of 4,280 cubic metres and will double our water storage capacity at the site. 

The detailed design is complete, and construction is estimated to begin in mid-2024.

The contract to build the water tank includes:

  • earthworks,
  • a 5-metre retaining wall,
  • a concrete water storage tank with a diameter of 28 metres and a height of 8.3 metres
  • pipework and valves.

The new tank is designed to last 100 years.
