The 3 Waters NTU Stormwater workstream has developed a way of categorising stormwater network assets to help identify those transferring to the Water Services Entities and those staying with Territorial Authorities. We have applied the methodology to available digital asset data across New Zealand, to enable us to quickly identify the core assets for transfer, while flagging those that need discussion between the WSE’s, the TAs, and other agencies.
This session will talk through the current programme for the transfer of stormwater assets and functions, the methodology development and application, and share some preliminary results. Challenges around consistency and assumptions relating to various asset types will be discussed.
This session is designed to be informative and will be of interest to those keen to hear how the reform is progressing, and to understand how the current legislative framework may play out in practical terms.
