Effective three waters services are essential for our communities

Our health and safety depends on safe drinking water, safe disposal of wastewater and effective stormwater drainage.

Our prosperity depends on adequate supply of cost effective three waters services for housing, businesses and community services.

Our environment depends on well managed extraction of drinking water, and careful disposal of wastewater and stormwater.

Three Waters Reform Programme

Three Waters Reform Programme – a three-year programme to reform local government three waters service delivery arrangements - was launched by the Government in July 2020.

Currently 67 different councils own and operate the majority of the drinking water, wastewater and stormwater services across New Zealand. Local government is facing urgent challenges in the provision of these services including: funding infrastructure deficits, complying with safety standards and environmental expectations, building resilience to natural hazards and climate change into three waters networks, and supporting growth.

The explanation above has been taken from the DIA website. For more detailed information about the Three Waters Reform Programme and our obligation to provide information, please see

Request for Information (RfI)

As part of our commitment to openly share information and analysis of our system to deliver the three water services in our district and the quality of our assets, we have the following documentation available.

This information collected is to support advice on the options for reform to the Steering Committee, local government elected members and Ministers over the coming months.   The information gathered will be an important part of the Reform Programme.
