Three Waters Reform
About the Three Waters Reform
The Three Waters Reform was originally triggered by the 2016 campylobacteriosis outbreak in Havelock North. This event led to the introduction of new legislation and a new national regulator for water services called Taumata Arowai. This organisation will have responsibility for overseeing and enforcing new drinking water regulations and providing oversight of the environment from the impacts of wastewater and stormwater.
The object of the reform is to provide a more efficient and consistent way of delivering three waters services across the country. It is believed that by providing these services at a larger scale, greater efficiencies and capabilities can be achieved.
More information is available on the Department of Internal Affairs website.
