Three Waters Reform

Three Waters is defined as Aotearoa’s drinking water, wastewater and stormwater. These water networks are facing a crisis and will continue to do so without some big changes. The Government is proposing to build a better system for our three waters that is still owned by the communities it serves.The Northland-based three waters entity is important not just for Council, government, business, NGO’s, and iwi but for all Northlanders - ratepayers or not. Improving the water quality is what is important and it is a matter of how the region should be approaching the three waters for the benefit of everyone now, and into the future.
