Taumata Arowai –

New Water Service Regulator in New Zealand

Safe drinking water for Aotearoa

Taumata Arowai is the new Water Service Regulator in New Zealand.  As such it will take over this duty from the Ministry of Health in 2021. The new provision is tasked with supervising, managing and enforcing the new  Water Service Bill (2020). Therefore, the Water Services Bill 2020 empowers the authority to establish a new regulatory system for clean and safe drinking water for all New Zealanders. Taumata Arowai is expected to help improve public health by implementing system wide reforms in drinking water, source waters, storm water and waste water, the three waters.

The new Water Services Bill (2020) addresses all owners, private and public water suppliers. Hence, it creates the legal framework for the provision of safe drinking water and compliance with NZ Drinking Water Standards 2005 (revised 208).

Taumata Arowei Te Mana O Te Wei

Emerged from Te Mana O Te Wei

Taumata Arowai has its roots in the concept of Te Mana O Te Wei. Thus, the perspective of te ao Māori is at the forefront of Taumata Arowai’s work. The new Water Services Regulator is striving to enhance the conditions for wai (water) and tangata (people) in New Zealand. In doing so, it will work collaboratively across Aotearoa to regulate the water services sector and protect mauri of the wai in our country. This will strengthen the significance and interconnectedness of tangata and wai health. 

Te Mana O Te Wei has the mission to restore and maintain the triad between the water (safe drinking water), the environment (land, rivers and coasts) and our communities.

A purpose-driven, local family business

Our understanding and embracing  of Te Mana o te Wai  will mean a new  focus on the professional treatment of contaminated water. It describes the perception of the integration and holistic well-being of water. As a purpose-driven local and family-owned business in Warkworth, we believe that this connection between water, people and the environment will lead to the local communities empowerment and security of a trusted and reliable water source for the supply of our communities drinking water needs.

As a local expert in water purification, UV filter systems, water filtration, water pumps, rain harvesting and bore water treatment, Aqua Works would like to provide advice to your business to help you to comply with the new legal requirements afforded within Te Mana o te Wai.
