Water is a critical part of our community, our environment and our economic success. We depend on it daily, but don't often give it a second thought. It's our district's unsung hero. One essential component of our three waters strategy is the processing and treatment of fresh water.

Timaru District is a thriving and innovative community. It is the central hub for the South Island, servicing a large agricultural heartland, with a growing economy that provides the import and export gateway for primary sectors. We boast a Top 10 most loved beach in New Zealand and have access to mountains, rivers and lakes, making Timaru an ideal destination for recreational, sporting and cultural pursuits.

Let's not forget about our affordable housing and that seven minute commute to work!
