Central Hawke’s Bay District Council wishes to notify prospective selected suppliers of a tender proposal (RFP) for a contract to provide collaborative partnership to review and update the Waipawa Water model including outputs, create a programme of works to address shortfalls in existing reticulation, improve firefighting improvements and ultimately prepare the town for growth in the future – whilst supporting and finding synergies in renewal of water infrastructure (e.g addressing pipe renewals inadvertently through this project).
Based on the 2016 work undertake by WSP-OPUS ‘Waipawa and Otane Detailed Modelling Outputs’.
Central Hawkes Bay District Council (CHBDC) has identified a number of potential challenges for the Waipawa and Otane water supplies:
• Servicing planned future growth.
• Allowing for potential new connections outside the urban boundary.
• Resolving areas of fire flow compliance.
Upgrades to resolve fire compliance issues in Waipawa were identified, with approximately 6,250 m of upgrades required to fully comply with the Fire Service Code of Practice. These upgrades are recommended to be made when pipes are due to renewal, with most pipes for upgrade being either cast iron or asbestos cement.
The proposed upgrades provide a way for CHBDC to provide an acceptable water supply to Waipawa, including dealing with challenges from growth and fire compliance.
