LGNZ outlines best practice water infrastructure options in its 3 Waters paper
Local Government New Zealand (LGNZ) has released its 3 Waters project position paper Improving New Zealand's water, wastewater and stormwater sector to the local government sector today and is seeking its feedback as part of a consultation process.
This paper represents the next stage in the 3 Waters project to better understand the state of three waters infrastructure, the challenges that lie ahead and options for delivering a best practice water infrastructure system.
LGNZ President Lawrence Yule says the paper is the culmination of previous work under the 3 Waters project and outlines what a world class water infrastructure network could look like.
“This position paper builds on the momentum of the 3 Waters project and describes how a ‘strong, sector-led approach’ is needed to put an improved regulatory framework in place to assist the potable and wastewater service providers in addressing key issues over time,” says Mr Yule.
“The paper also draws attention to the unique challenges facing the third water, stormwater, when considering possible pathways to improve sector performance,” says Mr Yule.
LGNZ’s National Council will consider submissions to its position paper later this year.
