Lyell Creek Sewer

Our sewer infrastructure was badly damaged by the 2016 earthquake, including damage to several wastewater pump station structures, rising mains and gravity sewers along Lyell Creek.

This sewer takes a large percentage of the wastewater for the whole of Kaikōura township. The repair and replacement of the sewer is the largest project in the horizontal infrastructure rebuild at an estimated $6million.

The project involves replacing about 3km of wastewater reticulation from Lyell Creek pump station to the Mill Road pump station.  A new sewer line will be installed along Beach Road and include pressure sewer collection tanks to service properties between Beach Road and Lyell Creek. A number of meetings and home visits with affected community members and stakeholders have been held to help home owners understand what this means for them.
