Drinking Water Quality

Our groups mission is to advance drinking water quality practice and outcome in New Zealand through collaboration.  We represent all aspects of drinking water practice, including technical advisers, process engineers, equipment suppliers, laboratory experts, scientists, training providers, water suppliers and compliance officials.

Membership of the groups is open to all Water New Zealand members. Activities of the group are overseen by a committee of up to fifteen group members and administered by Water New Zealand.

Committee membership is open to all group members, and new members are confirmed annually at the group’s Annual General Meeting.

If you are a Water New Zealand member and wish to belong to one of the special interest groups, make sure you are logged in to the Water New Zealand website, then simply send an email via the contact form at the bottom of this page to join our group.
