The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
Pressure sewer is a relatively new service method to the district which comprises a private on-site pump station with a grinder pump that grinds the raw wastewater into a slurry before pumping it into the Council sewer mains.
The Council currently has four pressure sewer schemes at Northside Country, Waikuku Beach, Stages 12 and 13 at Pegasus, Ohoka Village and Beach Grove, Kaiapoi. For pressure sewer schemes, the pump station, pipework to the boundary and control panel are all the responsibility of the property owner.
An assessment process was held in June 2015 to select approved suppliers of pressure sewer pump stations for use within the district, for connection to Council owned pressure sewer schemes. Note that this is different to Council owned STEP schemes, and the approved suppliers for these items can be found on the Septic tanks page.
Four companies submitted applications, with each applicant being assessed on six criteria by Council staff to determine a final weighted score for each potential supplier. The criteria assessed were:
Based on the assessment process described above, two suppliers were approved for use within the district. The approved supplier information is given below:
*Installation of any model pump station other than those specified above is subject to specific approval from the Wastewater Asset Manager.
It should be noted that the scores given above are based on a subjective assessment carried out by Council staff. Property owners and developers may place different weightings on the attributes considered. Therefore, the Council recommends that prospective purchasers obtain their own information from the suppliers and do their own assessment to make an informed decision before purchasing a pump station.
There are currently only two pressure sewer suppliers that can be used on Council-owned pressure sewer schemes.
