The Council operates sewerage systems in Hokitika, Franz Josef, Fox Glacier and Haast. Sewage is treated by oxidation ponds before discharge to natural water.  Franz Josef has a Floating Treatment Media installed within the oxidation ponds to assist with treatment of the wastewater.

The Group Manager of Assets and Operations, a professional Engineer, manages the sewerage systems programme with the assistance of the Professional Services Business Unit design and supervision of work. Operation and maintenance is carried out by contractors.

A full listing of wastewater charges can be found in Council's Annual Plan, copies of which may be obtained from the Council Office.
