Assessments are well underway with many homeowners taking advantage of the scheme to upgrade their wastewater systems to the standards required by law. The subsidised programme requires homeowners to register so their wastewater systems can be assessed. Once an assessment has been conducted and a property meets the criteria, the homeowner will be eligible for an upgraded wastewater system costing just $1,000.
System replacements usually cost $12,000 to 15,000. The programme is funded by the New Zealand Aid Programme, the European Union and the Cook Islands Government and is part of the ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability and lagoon protection.
The Water Waste and Sanitation (WATSAN) unit is focusing on properties in the Lagoon Protection Zone (LPZ) and asks any homeowners in the Titikaveka area to either come into the WATSAN office in Muri to register or go into the Kano Store next to the Kent Hall or Papa Ben Shop in Tikioki where registration sheets will be available.
Please make sure when registering that you provide your power box connection number.
