The water supply in Maheno has been operated by the local community through a committee for many years. Now the committee has asked the Council to take over the supply due to increasing regulatory requirements.
Work needs to be done on the supply and it will cost money to ‘plug’ Maheno into the Ōamaru to Moeraki pipeline. The change will result in a new rate for Maheno consumers based on the supply improvements that need to be done to join the wider Ōamaru supply.
Rates impact: The same rate as the Ōamaru Water rate will be applied to Maheno users in 2023-24
Feedback on the 2023-24 Annual Plan has now closed. We asked:
Do you support Council taking over the scheme, which will result in a new rate for Maheno users?
