24 key Issues have been raised by the counsel assisting the inquiry. Issues 1 - Current Safety Havelock North Drinking Water and 2 - Drinking Water Partnerships and Collaboration will be discussed on the 27 th – 29 th June, with the remaining issues 3 – 24 being discussed in the week beginning 7 th August

A fact sheet was collated by Water New Zealand on issue 2 through a collaborative process involving a cross section of members, including Water Suppliers, Consultants and Industry Experts.
