It almost here, the New Zealand Water Services Bill


Congratulations to New Zealand. Today, the anticipated water services bill (314-3) has moved to Royal Assent. Meaning the bill will very soon become the Water Services Act and passed into law. This landmark bill will allow Taumata Arowai to become official the drinking water regulator for New Zealand. This means the authority for small water supplies, water suppliers, bulk water suppliers, Water Quality Safety Plans and community drinking water regulation will pass from the Ministry of Health to Taumata Arowai. The bill become the next evolution of drinking water compliance for New Zealand and in some ways supersede the Health Act 1956 (however, it also work along side it).

The Water Services Bill calls into action the latest Drinking water standard for New Zealand and also discusses requirements for a drinking water safety plan for each water supplier. The drinking-water standards for New Zealand 2005 (Revised 2018) DWSNZ 2005 (R. 2018) represents small but significant changes to the way we look at acceptable water.
