Government funding for Three Waters Reform
In the first Three Water Reform funding round, Rangitikei received $4.8M to support existing Three Water Projects. The money has been allocated to the following projects:
- Marton to Bulls Wastewater Centralisation Project
- Potable water rising main from Bulls Water Treatment Plant to new Bulls Reservoir
- Renewal of a wastewater pump station rising main in Taihape.
The Central Government has also agreed to provide Council with $13,317,834 to support local well-being outcomes associated with climate change and resilience, housing and local placemaking. Council has not made any decisions about how this funding might be used.
Further to that, the Central Government is proposing to pay costs associated with Three Waters Reform. At this stage, we do not know how much that will be.
