Biological Trickling Filter Site Visit

Thursday 19 March 2015, 5.30pm. Napier BFT Plant, 55 Waitangi Road Awatoto, Napier.

The Hawke’s Bay Branch of IPENZ invites members of IPENZ and the Hawkes Bay Branch of RSNZ to join them for a site visit to observe the Napier Biological Trickling Filter (BFT) plant now in operation.


Ten years in the planning, the Biological Trickling Filter (BTF) plant was built alongside the existing milliscreening plant at Awatoto. The wastewater treatment upgrade provides a secondary treatment process that includes grit removal followed by biological treatment.  The design allows for further treatment stages to be added in future if required.

Use Main Treatment Gate for access and parking (Gate 2).

Safety Requirements: High Visibility Jacket, sensible shoes are required for access to the site. Please bring these items for your visit.

RSVP: Please confirm your visit to John Warren (06 845 4623)
