We maintain wastewater systems to provide the community with a safe and healthy environment through the appropriate treatment and discharge of wastewater.
This covers both domestic wastewater and trade waste.
Our reticulated wastewater system handles domestic sewage from kitchens, bathrooms, laundries and toilets. It also receives a smaller amount of liquid discharge from commercial and industrial premises, such as discharge from restaurants, takeaway outlets, food processors, metal finishers, service stations and chemical manufacturers.
If you have a pressure wastewater system you can report a problem with your pressure wastewater system.
Our wastewater system includes eight treatment plants, connected to our homes and businesses by pipes, manholes and pumping stations.
Trade waste is the commercial and industrial liquid waste that is disposed of through the Christchurch City Council sewerage system.
