In 2000, Dormer Construction Ltd constructed and completed 2 Pump Stations for the Western Bay of Plenty Council.

Waihi Beach was undergoing major construction of sewer reticulation and civil works at the time. It was the largest in New Zealand that had taken place in the last 10yrs during the year 2000.

During the contract DCL completed over 8km of sewer pipe lines. This included 150 manholes, 2km of well point dewatering and 2 pump stations.

The Pump Stations were all built to design and standards that were specified in the contract. The pump stations involved dewatering to depths of 5mtrs and excavations to depths of 5mtr to install the emergency storage chamber and wet wells. The bottom of the wet wells were at least 4mtrs below the high tide mark within the sand dunes.
