Central Otago District Council manages the reticulation networks that provide 'Three Waters' services - water, wastewater and stormwater - to homes and businesses in the Central Otago district.
The Ripponvale water scheme upgrade was one of two capital funding plans, the other being the Clyde Wastewater Reticulation Scheme, that was approved, along with the adoption of the 2022-23 Annual Plan, at the Central Otago District Council meeting on Wednesday 1 June 2022. Links to documents:
