Big changes to your water services are coming

The government is making big changes to the way your drinking water, wastewater and storm water services are delivered.

Here you will find key information on the Government’s three waters reforms and what the changes will mean for you. You can find all Government information here.

The changes mean that in future, your local council will no longer be responsible for these services – known as three waters.

Instead, they would be owned and delivered by one of four new multi-region entities across Aotearoa New Zealand.

In December 2022, Parliament passed the Water Services Entities Bill, the first legislation to make these changes happen.

It is important you know what is changing, what it means for you, and what happens next.
