North East Ashburton Water Reticulation
The following future project is budgeted and/or included in the Long Term Plan 2015-25.
Properties in the rural-residential area to the north-east of Ashburton area currently source drinking water independently from wells on each property. The shallow groundwater quality in the area is sometimes not of a high standard.
Council has extended the Ashburton water scheme network to service the Ashburton Business Estate. The scheme is proposed to be extended further to provide reticulated water to the properties between the town boundary and the Business Estate in 2019/20.
The design and consultation is scheduled for 2018/19. The project is budgeted at $3.8 million (after inflation adjustment).
