Marlborough District Council operates sewerage systems servicing Blenheim, Picton, Seddon, Spring Creek, Havelock and Renwick.

These systems consist of approximately 170 km of mains pipeline, 47 pump stations, five treatment plants and approximately 12,000 connections.

Council's Assets and Services Department supervises the operation of all sewerage systems, and has operational staff to maintain the Blenheim, Spring Creek and Havelock systems. Local contractors are engaged under competitive tender to maintain the other two systems as, being locally situated, they are able to respond to problems more quickly and economically. The design and construction of major developments is let out to competitive tender.
