Contract Awarded for Kopeopeo Remediation Project

With the appointment of a contractor to the Kopeopeo Remediation Project, physical works look set to start in the coming months, according to the Bay of Plenty Regional Council.

The Kopeopeo Canal Remediation project, co-funded by the Ministry for the Environment through the Contaminated Sites Remediation Fund (CSRF) will use a staged approach to remove, safely store and treat up to 40,000m³ of sediment from the Canal.

A consortium headed by EnviroWaste Services Limited has been awarded the contract for the removal of the sediment from a 5.1km section of the Kopeopeo Canal.

EnviroWaste will lead the contract and will be supported by a range of technical and specialist companies, with civil works carried out by local company Waiotahi Contractors.

Last month, variation to the consent was granted to allow the sediment to be removed using a cutter suction dredge and transferred by pipeline to the containment sites.

This new method was a response to concerns from the community about the risks of transporting partially dewatered sediment to the containment sites with trucks (the originally consented method).
