Timing

This briefing is expected to last for 20 minutes.

Purpose / Origin of Briefing

This briefing provides an update on the most recent and planned actions undertaken for recovery of the Christchurch Wastewater Treatment Plant (CWTP) following the fire on 1 November 2021.

Background

The fire that broke out at the wastewater treatment plant on 1 November 2021 caused significant damage to the plant’s two trickling filters, rendering them inoperable and ultimately resulting in them being taken offline.

While the plant continues to operate with no impact on capacity, the loss of functionality in the trickling filters has affected the quality of the wastewater treatment process.  The tricking filters were a major component in the treatment process and a key element for the effective management of odour.

A plant’s recovery plan, taking an adaptive management approach, is in progress to optimise the processing efficiency of the plant and minimise the emission of unacceptable odour.  Reducing odour as quickly and as safely as we can has been our focus as we have progressed the recovery plan.

We are developing measures to support the community most affected by the stench.

Finally we are communicating to all impacted communities, in as much detail as possible, actions we are taking to reduce the stench and other relevant information related to the odour using various communications channels, including daily blogs/posts, newsletters, website updates and media statements.  We are publically briefing Council elected members at least fortnightly.
