The wastewater disposal field at Duder Regional Park on Auckland’s East Coast was recently upgraded by the Citycare Water Auckland Small Waters Team.
A maintenance check revealed the dripper lines failed to flush, so they were replaced, while overgrowth affected the effectiveness of the field designated and consented for wastewater discharge.
Wastewater from the regional park toilet block is treated through a multi-stage process underground. Then, the water is pumped to a sequencing valve and distributed evenly around the field through a series of small pipes or dripper lines – a non-invasive way to dispose of the wastewater.
With help from our 2 in a Ute team, the disposal field is now being planted with eco-sourced manuka to protect it from flooding and to prevent overgrowth.
