Wastewater is another term for sewage and is the name for everything that gets flushed down the toilet, or washed down your kitchen sink and laundry into the wastewater system. 

Tauranga City Council is responsible for maintaining and improving the wastewater system to safeguard both the environment and public health.

There are two wastewater treatment plants for Tauranga that produce a very high standard of treated wastewater. The treated water is discharged into the ocean through an outfall pipe about a kilometre off shore.

The Southern Pipeline is a major wastewater project that will support Tauranga’s wastewater network safely into the future.
