Kāpiti Coast: Water Supply Options Considered (PDF, 1 page, 2Mb)

Top Ranked Solution - River Recharge with Groundwater

The following maps identify the location and conceptual diagram of the river recharge solution.  This option involves drinking ONLY river water.  Supplementary supply from the borefield will now be used to recharge the river and meet the minimum flow requirements.  

Next Ranked Solution - Maungakotukutuku Dam

A dam and reservoir in the Maungakotukutuku Stream, approximately 5 km upstream of the Waikanae Water Treatment Plant.  Rainfall is captured for controlled release during times of low flows in the Waikanae River.
