Shared Waters Management Company in the Waikato – member views on a Water New Zealand submission

Waipa District and Hamilton City Councils have released a Statement of Proposal to form a Shared Water Management Company (a non-asset owning Council Controlled Organisation) to manage drinking water, wastewater and stormwater services on behalf of both councils. Feedback on the proposal is due by 10am on Monday 27 November. The proposal is the result of several years of preparatory work in the region.

Water New Zealand intends to make a submission on the proposal expressing support for it. If members do not think the submission should support the proposal, please let us know your views by the end of next week (3 November) so we can amend the tone of the draft submission accordingly. Members are also encouraged to make submissions directly.

A draft submission will be included in the next pipeline on 9 November for member feedback before it is submitted. All views on the proposal are welcome and if received by 3 November will be taken into account when preparing the draft submission.
