Three Waters Regulation: Report on Targeted Engagement Workshops

15 Jul 2019

In May, the Three Waters Review completed its targeted stakeholder engagement programme relating to regulatory proposals for water.

The cross-agency Three Waters Review team has just compiled a high-level summary of feedback and suggestions following a series of meetings and regional workshops earlier this year.

The team was made up of officials from the Department of Internal Affairs, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry for the Environment. Its report can be found at the Three Waters Review website. The proposals and this summary report, and views it contains, do not represent Government policy.

The officials sought advice from the local government, health, environment, iwi/Māori, rural and water industry sectors on the emerging regulatory proposals to “enhance the quality and accuracy of further policy work”.

Ministers are expected to make their decisions on the regulation of three waters public in the coming weeks.
