Gerhard Mostert, (Contracts Engineer, Infrastructure, Rotorua Lakes Council), comments as follows:
It is great to see a community recognising the importance of protecting the health of the waterways for use and enjoyment of generations to come.
Many challenges were faced in 2022, COVID-19 continued to have an impact and wet weather. 147 properties have received their Biolytix systems. A further 92 properties are scheduled for installation. The Tamatea Street public toilet block will be completed during December 2022.
Landowners can make arrangements for site visits to discuss the installation and location of Biolytix systems by emailing our new project team member, Leo Morley from WSP, at Leo.Awata‐Morley@wsp.com.
We are also excited to have launched our video of the scheme which provides the community with further information about what we are achieving. You can view it here.
The information booklet taking property owners through the pre‐installation process and including key contacts is available here.
We thank the Contract management team, Fulton Hogan and WSP, who have worked hard throughout this year to make this progress.
Our next update will be in February 2023.
