Lyttelton Harbour Business Association was founded in February 2001 to provide area businesses with a commercially oriented platform for the support of economic development within the Harbour area.
As a group LHBA supports the Harbour’s businesses through governmental advocacy, industry cluster groups, inter-business communications and the support of wider community benefit programs.
McConnell Dowell have been awarded the contract to build the 5km and 1.8km long pipelines, which are stage two of a four stage $53 million scheme that will end the routine discharge of treated wastewater into Lyttelton Harbour by 2021.
Currently, wastewater from Lyttelton, Governors Bay and Diamond Harbour is treated at wastewater treatment plants in each of the townships before being discharged through outfall pipelines into Lyttelton Harbour.
Under the new scheme untreated wastewater from the townships of Governors Bay and Diamond Harbour will be carried through the submarine pipelines to a new pump station on Simeon Quay in Lyttelton.
It will then be piped through the Lyttelton Tunnel to the Ferrymead pump station and onto the Bromley wastewater treatment plant, where it will be treated. From there it will be discharged out to sea through the Christchurch Ocean Outfall.
