Call to Action

Difficulties to understand what you are? need help to understand your duties?

Registered or unregistered Supplies? These are your duties!

Registered Supplies

Definition & Duties

Registered suppliers need to provide a Drinking Water Safety Plan that meets the requirements of the Water Services Act 2021. This plan needs to be submitted to Taumata Arowai by November 2022. Alternatively, registered drinking water suppliers can comply with a Drinking Water Acceptable Solution.

Unregistered Supplies

Definition & Duties

Unregistered water suppliers have got up to 4 years to register with the water regulator and a further 3 years to hit the mark in terms of the regulations, e.g. providing a Water Safety Plan. This gives them 7 years in total to be fully compliant with the requirements of the Act. However, unregistered water suppliers have the duty of care to ensure any drinking water the supply is safe to drink. That means potable drinking water that meets the NZ drinking water standards.

Small Drinking Water Suppliers

Definition & Duties

Definition

Water Safety Plan…

Instead of implementing a Water Safety Plan, small suppliers can also comply with an Acceptable Solutions provided by Taumata Arowai. This is supposed to be a practical and cost-effective alternative to provide safe drinking water for their community.

our word
for it…

“Steve installed our pump & UV light some 6 years ago now and Karl comes to do the servicing. In summer, the pump stopped working. Steve responded sharply and came out very quickly. Whew. It was due to the drought and the ground shrinking – cracked a valve. It was great to have someone knowledgeable and experienced in these matters attending. Both are always on time or else communicative when running late. They go about their job professionally, leave things tidy and always do a good job. We are happy with their service and will keep using them. We can highly recommend them.”
