Water Care Services (CCO)

Introduction

            This study discusses how the quality of storm water, which is discharged into the Manukau Harbor in Auckland New Zealand, can be improved. The study entails a communication change plan for the organization. Factors, which influence the change process, are identified and described.

Background

            In 2013, a project to foresee the Auckland wastewater deposit was started. The wastewater would be deposited to the Manukau Harbour. There would be a 13km underground tunnel which is to deliver about 2 million cubic meters of the water and the sewage to the Mangere treatment plant annually (Intensification and Impact on the Manukau harbor, 2013). The treated water would be released to Manukau Harbour through the tunnel. This is also inclusive of the stormy seasons. There will be an emergency relief structure, which will be incorporated to take care of the untreated wastewater in plant failure during a storm. Air vents have been incorporated to release trapped air bubbles in heavy downpours. The air vent incorporates a 3m-tall vent at the Mangere Bridge near the doorway of the Ambury farm. 

Manukau is known as a recreational and a restoration place for the residents. The region is rich in beauty and space. This offers a magnificent opportunity for diversity. There are special species of wildlife, birds, and other creatures dependent on the harbor. There are also freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems, which is valuable to the residents.  Availability of water makes it a good place for recreational activities. However, the presence of storm water and the wastewater makes the place inhabitable for other forms of developments and recreational activities. The ecological system is also at risk. The risk is related to the open human wastes that may combine with the storm water. Since the early nineteenth century, the natives have valued these natural resources. There is therefore need to maintain its beauty and well as manage the ecology. This must come at a price. Part of the harbor will have to be part of the sewerage, which recycles water for use.

There is need to intensify the growth and development of the wastewater treatment and housing. Plans are underway to control waste discharges from Mangere. The wastes have been contributing to increased sedimentation and build up of mangrove. This is risky to the ecological health. It is also negatively affecting the recreational use. The harbor is to assist in the management of wastewater and stomp water. In order to manage the treatment capacity, there is need to apply land, treatment and wastewater policy. In many cases, there is a combined use of the pipes containing storm and wastewater. Since it is expensive to separate the two forms of pipes, the same pipes will still be used. Additional pipes will be included; storm drains as well as other forms of infrastructure. Auckland will therefore be offered the opportunity to reconstruct the systems in places where there is need for redevelopment.

Overview

            There is need to improve the efficient contribution to livable, economically and sustainable region (Clarke, 2008). It is also necessary that the residents overcome the traditional systems for water services and wastewater disposal. The change is necessary to offer a wider range of services, which is inclusive of the flexible and multifunctional services. Future water infrastructure should incorporate collection and recycling of integrated combination of water sources. Principals that need to bind the water sources should be inclusive of reduction of the ecological footprints. The principal can only be applied through a blend of national and decentralized systems. Through this multifunctional approach, more services such as management of floods, quality protection of waterways and improved biodiversity will be incorporated ((The Manukau Harbor Restoration Society, 2013). There is need to incorporate more cost effective and economically stable technologies into the system.

Situation Analysis

From the Auckland, human wastes are to be transferred to the harbor. The transfer is not a wise move, as the wastes cannot be directly transferred to the harbor in case of system failure. There is need to have a better system in place (The Manukau Harbor Restoration Societya, 2013). The call is to protect the surrounding ecosystem, which depends on the water for its survival. The surrounding plant and the birds would be affected in case human wastes can spill into their environment.

            The project is a good one. However, there is needed to come up with better projects to overcome the challenge of Manukau transfer. Introduction of a processing plant is an efficient move to deal with the wastewater while it is still nearer the source. Satellite processing plant is efficient as it is a high standard method of waste management.

Conclusion

            Manukau is a beautiful harbor that needs proper management of the natural resources (Sustainable Water Alternatives, 2013). In the absence of set policies, the harbor may not serve its entire purpose and still sustain its ecology. There is need therefore for the contributors to come up with better approaches of meeting their needs and sustaining the environment. It is also needful to put into consideration the need to have ecological policies and the procedures to follow in case the pipes may be blocked or in need of sudden repair.
