Work is underway to develop a clear technical National Three Waters Code of Practice for reticulation assets delivering drinking, storm, and wastewater services to communities and new developments across New Zealand.
There are currently 45 different codes of practice providing information on how to design and construct three waters infrastructure. Three Waters Reform gives us the opportunity to develop a single technical code to better deliver three waters infrastructure to our communities. Click here for further background on the Code of Practice.
The NTU’s Team will present the project’s methodology, timeline and progress to date. The next stages in the delivery provide the industry with further opportunities to provide feedback.
Please complete before this workshop the National Code of Practice Water Sector survey which will be used to guide the NTU Team towards the best possible outcomes for the development of the Code.
You will understand how the project was initiated and what its goals are. We will share how the content is being selected and how the team is working towards a final deliverable later this year.
The results from the survey above will be shared with you and decisions as to how the team will respond to that will be discussed.
