Who We Are

Water New Zealand is the industry body for the three waters sector – drinking water, wastewater and stormwater.

We advocate and promote the sustainable management of the water environment and in particular, the three waters through supporting members, and engaging with key partners and stakeholders.

We are the “go-to” three waters advisor, providing independent technical advice and data, workforce training, and delivering and enabling knowledge-sharing across New Zealand and internationally.

Our membership is made up of almost 3000 decisionmakers and technologists from local and central government, industry, the academic and research communities, consultants and service/equipment and supply organisations.

We work closely with members and partners to support Te Mana o te Wai and the Treaty of Waitangi.

‘Ka ora te wai, ka ora te whenua, ka ora ngā tāngata’
‘If the water is healthy, the land is healthy, the people are healthy’
