Waste and Asset Management Plans

Masterton District Council’s Draft Asset or Activity Management Plans (AMPs) are reviewed alongside the development of the Council’s Long Term Plan.

AMPs set out a 10-year programme for the management of specific groups of assets. The documents are reviewed cyclically (typically at least every three years) to ensure they remain relevant.

Water Treatment Plant

Water Supply

We provide treated water that is safe to drink to over 9,000 properties in the Masterton district, via an effective, economic, and secure distribution system. We also ensure that there is adequate capacity and pressure for firefighters.



We provide a safe and efficient local transport network throughout the Masterton district. This involves the construction, management and maintenance of road, street and footpath networks including pavements, bridges, traffic services, on and off-street parking and streetlights.


Storm Water

We provide stormwater systems, including the use of natural channels and streams, to collect and dispose of surface water run-off from residential, commercial, and industrial properties in the urban area. The stormwater system in rural areas is primarily open drains.

Parks and Open Spaces

Parks and Open Spaces

Our parks, reserves and sports fields provide recreational opportunities for residents and visitors, while also protecting, preserving, and enhancing the natural environment.

Waste Water Supply

Waste Water

We provide an efficient and safe system that collects, treats, and disposes of wastewater which drains from toilet, baths, sinks, washing machines and dishwashers. This service is provided to approximately 9,218 residential, commercial, and industrial properties in the urban area, Waingawa industrial area, Riversdale, Castlepoint and Tinui.

Waste minimisation

Waste Management Minimisation Plan

Our key focus for this plan is to reduce the total quantity of waste sent to class 1 landfills from 600kg to 400kg per person per annum by 2026. We are confident that with residents, businesses and councils working together we can become ‘waste free’.
