1 Section 5: Themes and groups of activities information 5.7 Water supply and, wastewater treatment and disposal 5.7 Water supply and, wastewater treatment and disposal Watercare is a council-controlled organisation responsible for delivering safe, clean and reliable drinking water to Aucklanders and collecting, treating and discharging the wastewater to receiving environments. Each day Watercare supplies around 326 million litres of high-quality drinking water to the people of Auckland and treats around 378 million litres of wastewater and trade waste. This spending area covers the following groups of activities: Water supply Wastewater treatment and disposal To deliver these activities we are proposing a 10 year budget for operating costs of $6.6 billion, and capital investment of $4.6 billion. Water supply and wastewater treatment Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Years 4-10 and disposal Total $million Operating expenditure ,915 6,572 Capital expenditure ,421 4,654 Our priorities will be focused around implementing this significant level of planned investment to address Auckland s growing population. Watercare is not funded by general rates; instead it is funded by borrowing, Infrastructure Growth Charges and water and wastewater user charges. To fund the proposed level of spending, price increases have been capped at 2.5 per cent for the first two years, and 3.6 per cent for the following eight years. Some of our top priorities in this area will be: The $966 million investment in building the Central Interceptor (a new wastewater tunnel between Western Springs and the Māngere Wastewater Treatment t) which will reduce overflows into waterways in central Auckland and the Waitemata Harbour by around 80 per cent and cater for future growth The proposal to increase the net water take from the Waikato River progressively over the next 35 years, from the current 150 million to 350 million litres per day. Watercare lodged its resource consent application in December 2013 and continues to consult with stakeholders. Watercare decided to apply for additional take from the Waikato River as that was the only viable option available to sustain the supply of drinking water to Auckland in the future. Some of the key changes we are proposing in this area are: Average price increases for water and wastewater significantly lower than originally projected in the Long-term Significantly lower Infrastructure Growth Charges per household unit equivalent than originally projected in the Long-term Replacement of the Long-term performance s with the new mandatory nonfinancial performance s developed by the Department of Internal Affairs. For a more detailed understanding about this spending area, please read the group of activities summaries that follow. 1 Operating costs exclude the allocation of corporate overheads as this is included in the Governance and Support Theme.

2 Section 5: Themes and groups of activities information 5.7 Water supply and, wastewater treatment and disposal

3 5.7.1 Water supply Water Supply Key activities These include managing and maintaining: 30 sources of water including 12 dams 19 water treatment plants 90 water reservoirs 8938 km of water pipes Watercare collects, treats and distributes drinking water from 12 dams, 15 groundwater sources and springs and three river sources. A total of 118 billion litres of water was sourced in and treated at 19 plants and distributed through 8938 kilometers of water pipes through 90 reservoirs to 1.4 million people. How these activities drive Auckland outcomes Water supply is essential for human consumption, primary production, economic activity and sanitation. It is also the one of the core pieces of infrastructure needed to support future growth. This drives the following Auckland outcomes of: A fair, safe and healthy Auckland Watercare is facilitating this outcome by providing Aucklanders with a high-quality, reliable supply of drinking water. A green Auckland Through its Waterwise Advice line and Be Waterwise programme, Watercare is promoting waterefficient behaviours to consumers and making every effort to reduce the demand for water services, detailed in the Auckland Regional Water Demand Management. These activities directly influence the following Auckland targets: Target 7.1: Reduce gross per capita water consumption from 2004 levels by 15 per cent by Target 12.1: Reduce maximum annual potable water network losses to less than 12 per cent of total network volume by Overall, we will our performance against the following levels of service: Indicative Long-term Targets Provide uninterrupted access to safe, clean and drinkable water The extent to which the local authority's drinking water supply complies with part 4 of the drinking-water standards 1 (bacteria compliance criteria) 100.0% 100% 100% 100% 100% 1 Further details can be found at revised-2008

4 Section 5.7: Water supply and wastewater treatment and disposal Water supply Indicative Long-term Targets The extent to which the local authority's drinking water supply complies with part 5 of the drinking-water standards (protozoal compliance criteria) Median response time for attendance for urgent call-outs: from the time that the local authority receives notification to the time that service personnel reach the site Median response time for resolution of urgent calls-outs: from the time that the local authority receives notification to the time that service personnel confirm resolution of the fault or interruption Median response time for attendance for non-urgent callouts: from the time that the local authority receives notification to the time that service personnel reach the site Median response time for resolution of non-urgent call-outs: from the time that the local authority receives notification to the time that service personnel confirm resolution of the fault or interruption 100.0% 100% 100% 100% 100% 60 mins 60 mins 60 mins 60 mins 5 hours 5 hours 5 hours 5 hours 2 days 2 days 2 days 2 days 5 days 5 days 5 days 5 days

5 5.7.1 Water supply Indicative Long-term Targets The total number of complaints received by the local authority about any of the following: a) drinking water clarity b) drinking water taste c) drinking water odour d) drinking water pressure or flow e) continuity of supply f) the local authority's response to any of these issues expressed per 1000 connections to the local authority's networked reticulation system The percentage of real water loss from the local authority's networked reticulation system The average consumption of drinking water per day per resident within the territorial authority district 13.9% % 13% 13% 13% 272 +/- 2.5% 270 +/- 2.5% 268 +/- 2.5% 253 +/- 2.5% Key projects to achieve this Second Waikato River Take - The proposal to increase the net water take from the Waikato River progressively over the next 35 years, from the current 150 million to 350 million litres per day. Watercare lodged its resource consent application with the Waikato Regional Council in December 2013 and continues to consult with stakeholders. Watercare decided to apply for additional take from the Waikato River as that was the only viable option available to sustain the supply of drinking water to Auckland in the future. Once the consent is granted, Watercare will plan a staged expansion of the Waikato Water Treatment t and the construction of a second pipeline from the plant. This will secure Auckland s water supply for more than 30 years. s to invest $160 million in the Franklin area to develop and upgrade services over 20 years are well advanced. This is part of Southern Networks Upgrade project; in September 2013, the Pukekohe and Buckland communities were connected to Auckland s metropolitan water supply. With this, they became the first towns in Franklin to receive the same quality of water as the rest of Auckland. Patumahoe and Clarks Beach will be connected in early 2015.

6 Section 5.7: Water supply and wastewater treatment and disposal Water supply What it will cost to deliver To deliver these activities we are proposing a 10 year budget for operating costs of $2.5 billion, and capital investment of $2.2 billion. In total our planned expenditure is as follows: For the indicative costs and timing of Capital projects refer to Section 7.

7 5.7.2 Wastewater treatment and disposal Wastewater treatment and disposal Key activities These include managing and maintaining: 7834 km of wastewater pipes 500 wastewater pump stations 18 wastewater treatment plants Watercare is responsible for the collection, treatment and disposal of wastewater in Auckland. Each day, Watercare s wastewater network collects and treats around 378 million litres of wastewater to a high standard. The two main wastewater plants servicing the majority of the region are located at Māngere on the Manukau Harbour and Rosedale on the North Shore. Wastewater is conveyed through 7834 kilometres of wastewater pipes before treatment. The regional network includes 500 wastewater pump stations. How these activities drive Auckland outcomes Our wastewater reticulation collects and treats wastewater before discharging the treated water into the receiving environment. It is also a core piece of infrastructure required to support future growth. This drives the following Auckland outcome of: A green Auckland by reducing the risks of discharging untreated wastewater into the natural environment, Watercare is making every effort to protect Auckland s waterways and the surrounding ecosystem. These activities directly influence the following Auckland targets: Target 12.3: Reduce wet weather overflows to an average of no more than two events per discharge location per annum, where the stormwater and wastewater systems are separated, by 2040, (with priority given to bathing beaches and other sensitive receiving environments by 2030). Overall, we will our performance against the following levels of service: Indicative Long-term Targets Provide reliable wastewater services and manage discharges to maintain or improve the health of the environment The number of dry weather overflows from the territorial authority's sewerage system, expressed per 1000 sewerage connections to that sewerage system

8 5.7.2 Wastewater treatment and disposal Indicative Long-term Targets Compliance with the territorial authority's resource consents for discharge from its sewerage system d by the number of: a) abatement notices b) infringement notices c) enforcement orders d) convictions received by the territorial authority in relation to those resource consents a) 0 b) 0 c) 0 d) 0 a) 2 b) 2 c) 2 d) 0 a) 2 b) 2 c) 2 d) 0 a) 2 b) 2 c) 2 d) 0 a) 2 b) 2 c) 2 d) 0 Attendance at sewerage overflows resulting from blockages or other faults: median response time for attendance - from the time that the territorial authority receives notification to the time that service personnel reach the site 60 mins 60 mins 60 mins 60 mins Attendance at sewerage overflows resulting from blockages or other faults: median response time for resolution - from the time that the territorial authority receives notification to the time that service personnel confirm resolution of the blockage or other fault 5 hours 5 hours 5 hours 5 hours

9 5.7.2 Wastewater treatment and disposal Indicative Long-term Targets The total number of complaints received by the territorial authority about any of the following: a) sewerage odour b) sewerage system faults c) sewerage system blockages d) the territorial authority's response to issues with its sewerage system expressed per 1000 connections to the territorial authority's sewerage system Key projects to achieve this The Central Interceptor will carry wastewater 13 kilometres from Western Springs to the Māngere Wastewater Treatment t. This $966 million project will replace the ageing Hillsborough Tunnel and Manukau Siphon that are nearing the end of their life, reduce overflows significantly and cater for population growth. Watercare received resource consent in November 2013 and is currently working on a detailed design as well as confirming the construction methodology. The construction is expected to take six years to complete. The $173 million upgrade of the Māngere Wastewater Treatment t, involving the construction of an additional Biological Nutrient Removal facility, which will ensure continuing compliance with consent conditions and the ability to treat future increased flows without compromising environmental objectives.
