Council manages five water supply schemes in the Grey District for the sourcing, treatment and distribution of water. They are:
- Wider Greymouth (Greymouth, Cobden, Blaketown, Boddytown, Karoro, South Beach, Paroa)
Privately owned water tanks are used in townships without reticulated schemes.
Council provides a sustainable and quality water supply to connected communities for domestic and commercial use. We regularly monitor the quality of water and plan for the needs of the District as a whole, and individual communities within the District, including any maintenance and upgrades needed to retain service levels.
Water supply is funded by a targeted rate charged to ratepayers able to connect to a Council scheme, which funds operation and maintenance of the water supply scheme.
Council's approach to managing water supply is detailed in the Annual Plan and Long Term Plan.
