This bylaw describes how we supply clean, safe water and who we supply it to. Our current bylaw was adopted in 2008, and under the Local Government Act it’s now due to be reviewed.
We’ve taken a look at the current bylaw and considered what has changed since it was written, and we’ve decided to make some changes to it.
We’d like to hear your views on our Water Supply Bylaw, particularly the options set out in our Statement of Proposal.
The formal consultation process begins on Tuesday 8 April. There are a number of ways you can have your say:
What about water meters?
There’s a lot of talk in the Wellington Region about water meters, and we want to be clear that we’re not proposing any change that will cause there to be any new metered customers.
However we will be checking to make sure that all our industrial and commercial customers who are currently “Extraordinary Supply” customers (these are customers that are already paying for the volume of water they use) are all being correctly metered and read.
